Robert Kubica will step up his motorsport return by driving one of Citroen's multiple World Rally title-winning C4 WRCs on two national events later this month.
The Pole had to pause his career after sustaining serious injuries in a rallying crash in Italy in February 2011. But after a long rehabilitation, he began testing rally cars before competing on – and winning – two domestic events in Italy earlier this year.
Citroen will now provide him with one of its C4s, the predecessor to the current DS3 WRC, for the Rally di Como in Italy on Nov. 15-17 and France's Rallye du Var a week later.
"I can't wait to drive a car that is as quick and has been as successful as the C4 WRC," said Kubica. "Rallying is one of my favorite forms of motorsport.
"After completing a test session so that I can get used to the car, competing in the Rally di Como will above all be an opportunity to get to a feel for the car and learn more about driving it in racing conditions.
"The objective will be different for the Rallye du Var. This will be the third time I have taken part, so it's a rally with which I am already familiar and where I feel comfortable."
