With his ninth FIA World Rally Championship title nearly in his pocket, Sebastien Loeb confirmed that he will, as expected, run selected rally events in 2013. The French ace for the Citroen team is also a team owner in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
At the Paris Motor Show, Loeb indicated that he might consider the FIA World Touring Car Championship in 2014 with Citroen. Loeb commented: "We have thought about a new challenge together with Citroen. This is another world championship, and it would allow me to take on this new challenge."
Loeb, who is also a brand ambassador for Citroen confirmed: "We will follow a partial programme, and we will be there at the start of the Rally Monte-Carlo.”
Concerning the WTCC future programme, Yves Matton, Citroen Racing team principal added, "The role of brand ambassador for Citroen cannot be a passive one for someone as driven as Sebastien. This project would give him the opportunity to pursue his career in track racing with the support of the manufacturer with which he has worked since his competitive debut.”
