Kubica to take part in Monte Carlo Rally

Renault F1 new boy Robert Kubica prepares to take his rallying hobby to its most serious level yet - with an outing on the historic Monte Carlo Rally later this month
Renault F1 star Robert Kubica is to continue his rallying adventures with an appearance on the prestigious Monte Carlo Rally later this month – his fourth outing with a roof over his head in the space of as many months.

Polish sources Wirtualna Polska and public radio broadcaster Polskie Radio reported the news initially, with the 25-year-old set to get back behind the wheel of a Renault Clio R3 alongside co-driver Jakubem Gerberem when the Monégasque event gets underway on 19 January.

Kubica's recent rallying exploits include the Sicilian Rally Taormina-Messina in November, 35th place on the subsequent Italy-based Ronde Città dei Mille and 29th position on the Rallye du Var in France.

In the run-up to Christmas, the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix-winner was supposed to similarly contest the Rally Internazionale Il Ciocchetto, but the event was called off due to heavy snow. He has hinted at a full-time rallying future post-F1.
