Polish fans of Robert Kubica will get a chance to 'Get Closer' to their home grown hero next month, when BMW Sauber's Pit Lane Park grand prix sideshow visits Warsaw, Poland's capital city, for the second time.

Kubica will visit the theme park on Saturday June 14, in between the Canadian and French grand's prix and he will drive the team's F1 car, taking over from Ho-Pin Tung, who will be in action on the Friday and Sunday.

The new look extravaganza, which made its 2008 debut at the Turkish GP this month - attracting more than 25,000 Turkish fans - will be situated at Warsaw's Bemowo Airfield.

"The BMW Sauber F1 Team Pit Lane Park is great. Last year in Warsaw more than 100,000 fans took the opportunity to find out more about F1," said Kubica, who is currently fourth in the drivers' championship.

"I'm sure all the fans will be thrilled again with the fantastic attractions Pit Lane Park has to offer. Where else can you actually climb inside a monocoque or see a completely dismantled race car? My favourite activity in the park is the simulator. The rides are amazingly realistic."

In 2007 BMW Sauber's high-tech event park paid a visit to Warsaw and it turned out to be real crowd puller, drawing in the largest numbers to date, with a total of 109,220 excited fans.

"I'm certain that a lot more people would have been there if Pit Lane Park had had a bigger capacity," added Kubica. "The atmosphere was incredible."

In order to increase the number of fans that can be accommodated, the Pit Lane Park has been modified for 2008 and the grandstands surrounding the 100-metre race track offer over 600 seats to the visitors, who can watch the F1 car demonstrations and spectacular action by a Formula BMW FB02 race car driven by talented youngster Michael Christensen.

"For the first time tickets will be on offer for the Warsaw BMW Sauber F1 Team Pit Lane Park, to give all fans who want to visit this interactive Formula One pit lane equal opportunities and in order to manage the expected stream of visitors," added a statement from the team.

Tickets are available on the internet, at: www.eventim.pl and in over 150 stores countrywide.
