The Frenchman will tackle Belgium’s Condroz-Huy Rally in November at the wheel of a Citroen DS3 WRC, with his wife Severine as co-driver.
Also competing will be Citroen Racing boss Yves Matton, who will drive a Citroen Xsara WRC with notes called by nine-time champion co-driver Daniel Elena.
"Séverine was excited by this rally because she likes to compete with me once or twice a year,” said Loeb, who won the Swiss Championship counter Rallye du Chablais alongside his wife earlier this year.
“We know we'll have a nice time together. Our foremost goal is to have fun. But obviously, I still want to sign a good result."
But with Matton masterminding Loeb’s World Touring Car programme next year, Loeb isn’t sure how to deal with his new opponent.
“I have a lot of pressure,” he explained. “The advantage I have with Séverine is that they leave with a lot of ballast in their car. On the other hand, if I beat Yves I might risk my place in the WTCC…"
