Loeb open to WRC return

Loeb said much depended on his Rallycross programme with Peugeot

Sébastien Loeb has hinted that he could make “one or two” WRC appearances next season after enjoying a successful gravel test in Citroën’s C3 World Rally Car.

Citroën invited the nine-time world champion to drive the car in Catalonia this week at its pre-event test for RallyRACC Catalunya – Rally de España (5 – 8 October). Loeb took the wheel on Wednesday, six weeks after sampling the car for the first time on French asphalt.

Addressing speculation that he might make a WRC comeback in 2018, Loeb said much depended on his Rallycross programme with Peugeot, but that a limited number of rallies were a possibility.

“I’m waiting to know if Peugeot continues in World RX,”he explained. “If they do, it will be my main programme for next year. Next to that, if there is some opportunity to drive the [C3] car in one or two [WRC] races, anything is possible, but it’s not decided at the moment.”
