One of the most experienced drivers in the business, Bryan Bouffier’s career stretches back to 2000 and the same Volant Peugeot series in which Sébastien Loeb made his debut.

Bouffier won the title in 2002 and the following year he signed to Peugeot Sport - beginning a long and successful association.

Armed with the 206 S1600, he led the firm’s French Tarmac Championship squad in 2004 and 2005, and in 2006 he progressed to the European Championship.

Bouffier switched to an S2000 car run by Peugeot’s Polish arm and won the Polish title in 2007 and 2008. A switch to a Mitsubishi Lancer in 2009 led to a third title but Bouffier returned to Peugeot in 2010 when he won the French Tarmac Championship.

An IRC season followed in 2011, and he began it with a high-profile victory at Rallye Monte-Carlo, which was part of the series that year.

After another French championship campaign in 2012, he finished runner-up in the 2013 IRC and also made a handful of WRC starts. He drove a Citroën DS 3 World Rally Car to fifth at Rallye Monte-Carlo and tackled three WRC 3 rounds in an R3-spec Citroën, taking a class victory in Portugal.

There were more WRC outings in 2014, starting with a one-off appearance for M-Sport in Monte-Carlo. Driving a Ford Fiesta RS World Rally Car, Bouffier led for much of the rally but finished second to Sébastien Ogier’s Volkswagen. He signed to Hyundai as a test driver and made two appearances in an i20 World Rally Car in France and Germany.

In 2015 and 2016 Bouffier continued with a typically mixed bag of Polish, European and occasional WRC outings, and established a new co-driving partnership with the vastly experienced Denis Giraudet.

In 2017, the pair will drive a Ford Fiesta R5 in WRC 2 for the Gemini Clinic Rally Team
