Kubica to contest Wales Rally GB

NEWS STORY
15/10/2013

Former F1 star Robert Kubica will step up to the DS3 WRC for the final round of the World Rally Championship next month.

After a highly successful season in their DS3 RRC, Kubica and his co-driver Maciek Baran will compete in the top-flight category in the final round. Thanks to the support of Citroen Racing and Sheikh Khalid Al Qassimi, they will line up at the start of Wales Rally GB in the DS3 WRC of the Abu Dhabi Citroen Total World Rally Team.

With four category wins from the six rallies in which he has competed, Kubica, who was badly injured in a rally crash ahead of the 2011 Formula One season, can rightfully feel pleased with his debut season in the WRC.

Currently leading the WRC2 championship standings, he will be trying to seal overall victory later this month at Rally RACC Catalunya, where second place would be enough for him to win his first world title. Wales Rally GB, which until now was not part of his programme for this year, will provide him with the perfect opportunity to put his skills to the test in rally's top-flight category.

"This one-off outing for the works team is a great opportunity for me, but it's also a huge challenge," said the Pole. "Wales Rally GB wasn't part of my original programme, so I'm very happy to be able to have this precious experience. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my partners, and especially the Lotus Group and Citroen Racing for having made this possible."
