Damien Meunier kick-started his motorsport career at 16 years old, with his entry into the 2017 French rallycross championship making him the youngest driver ever to complete a full campaign in the Super1600 category.
He progressed to the final on seven occasions from nine attempts, capping off a stunning maiden season with a podium at the Lavaré track.
Having finished fifth in the overall standings, Meunier progressed to the headlining class of the French championship the following year, driving behind the wheel of a Citroen DS3 Supercar. Meunier battled his way to the final at half of the ten events on the calendar, with a highlight being a season-best fourth-place finish in Châteauroux and fifth place in Lavaré.
The 2019 campaign saw Meunier make his debut on the World Rallycross Championship package, entering three RX2 events at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Circuit de Lohéac and the season-opener in Barcelona where he qualified for the final against a grid of international superstars.
Like many drivers, Meunier suffered a disrupted 2020 but kept his eye in with appearances in the Super1600 category of the CEZ Championship – bagging a podium in the Italia RX at Maggiora Offoad Arena – and the Frenchman will hope for similar success in RX2e this term.
