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.
