Rally star Loeb could go circuit racing

World Rally Champion, Sebastien Leob, wants to go circuit racing, while continuing to compete for Citroen in the WRC.
"I don't see myself stopping rallying. But I would like to do something besides the WRC, to run in a circuit racing championship, in parallel," Loeb told L'Equipe magazine.
The Frenchman is contracted to Citroen until the end of 2009, and there has been speculation linking Citroen to a program in the German Touring Car Championship (DTM).
Loeb didn't specificy which discipline of racing he was interested in, but a Citroen / DTM program makes sense, and would offer great PR value for the manufacturer.
