Triple world rally champion, Sebastien Loeb will get behind the wheel of a Renault F1 car next month.

The Frenchman, who is currently preparing for this weekend's Rally Ireland, will do a couple of demonstration runs at the Paul Ricard circuit in the South of France.

He will drive the R26 - last year's championship winning car and the same machine that is used for the regie's Formula 1 road show programme.

The event is being organised by Elf/Total, which sponsors both the Citroen World Rally Team and the Renault F1 team.

As part of the 'promotional' day one of the Renault F1 team drivers will also get to drive Seb's Citroen C4 WRC, and while it has yet to be confirmed which driver will get the nod, a spokesperson for the team told that it is likely to be Heikki Kovalainen.

The event is scheduled to take place on Wednesday December 5, three days after the Wales Rally GB - the final round in the 2007 FIA World Rally Championship, which runs from November 29 to December 2.
