I always love a chance to win a motorcycle, but when it’s a very special motorcycle and one that has been customised and designed by a motorsports icon and custom power house…and there’ll only be two in existence….then I’m all in…all the way!
“Indian Motorcycle has announced a test ride campaign that will see one lucky winner presented with one of just two special Indian FTR custom machines designed by Sebastien Loeb and built by renowned French builder, Tank Machine. Making this prize even more exclusive, the second of the two unique FTR ‘Loeb’ machines to be built will be presented to Loeb himself, making this a truly special and unique prize.”
The very latest press release from Indian motorcycles details the custom build and the inspiration behind it…and who can enter to be the luckiest of winners;
“Between February 8th and May 15th, riders in participating countries can qualify for this once in a lifetime chance by registering online, selecting an Indian Motorcycle dealer, and visiting that dealer to take a test ride on any model from the Indian FTR lineup.
From World Rally to World Touring Cars, Pikes Peak to the Dakar Rally, Rallycross to Xtreme E and more, Sébastien Loeb’s exceptional career has seen him display his legendary skills across a multitude of disciplines while setting records along the way. What is less known is that Sébastien Loeb discovered his passion for motorsports in regional moped events before trying his hand at motorcycle racing on circuits and in enduro.
Although more often seen behind the wheel, Loeb loves to ride motorcycles on the road or track whenever he can, and since collaborating with Indian Motorcycle in February 2022 as an ambassador for the brand, has been an enthusiastic rider of his Indian FTR R Carbon.
“Motorcycling has always been a passion of mine and my career could have been so different if the right opportunity in motorcycle racing had presented itself before my move to four wheels. Riding is a unique experience, a whole different world of sensations compared to driving a car, and the FTR was just the perfect choice for me,” said Sébastien Loeb.
“I’ve become a big fan of the FTR’s unique style and performance, so to be asked to create a one-off build with Tank Machine was a real honour. I can’t wait to see the finished bike and I am sure the winner will love their FTR as much as I will.”
Celebrating his nine World Rally championships and his passion for motorcycles, Loeb and Tank Machine have envisioned the ‘FTR Loeb’ as a unique interpretation of the American V-twin which Tank Machine will now bring to life in metal and paint over the coming months.
Tank Machine and Indian Motorcycles have regularly collaborated on many projects since the creation of the Super Scout in 2016, which was also presented to a competition winner.
The lucky winner will be randomly selected at the end of May ready to be whisked away on a VIP trip to Wheels & Waves in June meet the Tank Machine team and be presented with their ‘FTR Loeb’.”
