Following on from the announcement that he is to test a Formula One car with Toro Rosso, World Rally Championship title winner Sebastien Loeb is also to get behind the wheel of the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP thanks to a joint initiative from Citroen, Peugeot and joint sponsors Total.
Citroen and Peugeot will come together for a special event on 27 November at the Paul Ricard circuit in France, where Loeb will get the chance to take to the track during the afternoon at the wheel of the 908 HDi as raced by Peugeot in the Le Mans 24 Hours. While Loeb has raced at Le Mans in the past for Pescarolo Sport, the test will mark his first run in the diesel-powered coupe.
Prior to Loeb's run, factory Peugeot driver Stephane Sarrazin will be given the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the Citroen C4 that has carried Loeb to a fifth straight WRC title this season.
It will mark a return to a WRC car for Sarrazin, who previously drove for Subaru and showed his prowess on asphalt events before being signed up by Peugeot for its sportscar programme.
