One of this year's contenders in the inaugural WRC Trophy, Raoux is an experienced rally driver, who can draw upon 13 years of competition on French, European and now World Championship stages.

Like many French rally drivers, including four-time champion Sébastien Ogier, Raoux began his career driving a two-wheel-drive Peugeot 206 in the manufacturer's domestic Volant series. In fact Raoux and Ogier competed against one another in the 2006 and 2007 seasons.

In 2010 Raoux switched to a Renault Clio R3 and took his rallying up a gear with a number of appearances in the IRC. An expanded programme followed in 2011, but business commitments in 2012 meant rallying took a back seat. He returned in 2013 with an S2000-spec Peugeot 207 and made his WRC debut at Rallye Monte-Carlo, he also tackled a handful of ERC and French championship outings. It was a similar story in the three seasons that followed and during this period Raoux progressed to R5 machinery.

The launch of the WRC Trophy in 2017 tempted Raoux back to a full programme again, this time at the wheel of a Citroën DS 3 World Rally Car run by PH Sport. With an eye on the future, Raoux has set himself the goal of wining the WRC Trophy in 2018.
