Kubica escapes injury after rally crash in Italy

Kubica rally crashSep.17 (GMM) Robert Kubica’s return to competitive action has taken a knock after he crashed out of a minor rally in Italy, a week after winning a similar event.

Finally returning to action after a 19-month recovery from serious injuries, the former BMW and Renault F1 driver won the recent Ronde Gomitolo di Landa rally at the wheel of a Subaru Impreza.

But Kubica, who clearly no longer enjoys the full mobility of his right arm in the wake of his February 2011 rally accident, crashed during another minor Italian rally – the San Martino di Castrozza – at the weekend.

Italian reports say that the 27-year-old Polish driver struck a tree, and photographs of the heavily damaged Subaru depict the car on its side in a ditch.

Kubica and his co-driver were videotaped walking away from the crash unscathed. Event organisers confirmed that they were unhurt.
