In a close Rally Argentina World Rally Championship (WRC) race Sebastien Loeb took his eighth victory in the Rally Argentina as well as his 78th WRC win. Driving the PWR cooled Citroen DS3, Loeb finished 55.0 seconds in front of Sebastien Ogier, who still leads the championship, driving the PWR cooled Volkswagen Polo R.

Ogier dominated the early part of the four-day, 14-stage event, winning five of the first six stages but he could not break Loeb, and when he went off the road for almost 40 seconds, Loeb transformed a 17 second deficit into a lead.
