Formula 1 driver Robert Kubica looks likely to make his competitive debut for new employer Renault at the seat of a rally car on the Rallye du Var later this month.
Kubica is a long-time supporter of rallying – even running his own Skoda Fabia WRC for private testing – and has been linked to an entry in a Clio R3 rally car for the final round of the French Rally Championship on the Cote d'Azur. The Saint Maxime-based Rallye du Var runs for three days, from November 26-29.
Kubica told France's Autohebdo, "It's [the entry on du Var] not 100 percent certain yet, but there are very big chances.
"It will be only for fun – I'm not interested in times. I already asked for a video of the stages. I know some roads in this region and I realize how difficult task it will be for me."
