Autosprint in Italy had the news first – that Sebastien
Loeb will race for Henri Pescarolo’s team at Le Mans next
year. This will be the third time that the rally champion will race
a Pescarolo in the 24 Hours.
Autosprint suggests that Peugeot was keen to sign Loeb

Italian magazine also indicates that Sebastien Bourdais will be
heading to Peugeot for Le Mans next year. The Champ Car champion
has previously raced for Pescarolo at Le Mans. Peugeot has still
not announced its 2007 driver line-up.
Meanwhile, Bourdais has been testing for F1 team Scuderia Toro Rosso,
and team owner Gerhard Berger has apparently put him on the team’s
list of potential drivers in 2008. Bourdais is already confirmed
at Newman Haas again for 2007.
