Kubica set for Rallye d'Antibes

Taking full advantage of a weekend 'off' from his day job, Renault F1 star Robert Kubica has entered this weekend's Rallye d'Antibes in a Renault Clio S1600
Renault F1 star Robert Kubica is taking advantage of the break in-between the Japanese Grand Prix and inaugural Korean Grand Prix this weekend to further indulge his second love of rallying – with an outing on the historic Rallye d'Antibes in Southern France

The Pole has entered a number of rallies in recent months, and early this year he embarked upon the legendary Monte Carlo Rally, unfortunately being forced out only four kilometres into the action after suffering an engine failure. Rallye d'Antibes – the penultimate round of the FIA European Rally Championship and an event that nine years ago was won by a certain Sébastien Loeb – takes in some of the same roads.

Kubica will be driving a Renault Clio S1600 in the 14-strong A6 class, up against a field composed of predominantly Clios and Citroën C2s.
