Sebastien Loeb has confirmed he will contest next year's GT Sprint Series in a McLaren MP4-12C GT3.
The Frenchman confirmed his decision at this morning's launch of the Citroen Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team, the squad with which he will tackle four rounds of the 2013 World Rally Championship. The nine-time World Rally Champion's focus next season will, however, be on racing next season as he tackles his first year-long series.
In addition to his McLaren outings – which will be run by his own Sebastien Loeb Racing team – he will also prepare for Citroen's proposed entry to the World Touring Car Championship in 2014.
Loeb said: "I will do the World GT Championship. I like the format of the races in this championship it is for two one-hour races through the weekend. There are two drivers and we have the tire change as well."
Loeb has already driven the McLaren he will use next season at a French GT Championship race at Le Castellet in October.
