Seven-times World rally champion Sebastien Loeb has set up his own team with a friend and could one day move into circuit racing.

The Frenchman said on Sunday his first aim would be to compete in the Porsche Carrera Cup in 2012 with endurance races such as the Le Mans 24 Hour also in mind.

"Rallying is a big part of my life, something I will always love, and it is for that reason I will continue with it," Loeb said, “but in the years to come, when I will have a little more free time, I want to discover a new universe."

Loeb is leading the 2011 World Rally standings by eight points with one race remaining, the Rally of Britain to be run in Wales from November 10-13.
