Kubica fired up for rally drive in Citroen WRC car

Robert Kubica Fernando AlonsoNov.8 (GMM) Robert Kubica will continue his push for racing fitness by stepping up to the wheel of a full world rally-spec Citroen C4 for two forthcoming minor rallies (Rally di Coma and Rallye du Var).

“I can’t wait to drive a car that is as quick and has been as successful as the C4 WRC,” said the former BMW and Renault Formula One driver, who was seriously injured in a rally crash in February 2011.

This year Kubica won the Citta di Bassano rally in northern Italy in October.

“I still have a long road in front of me,” Kubica said afterwards. “But this shows the road is not as long as we thought,” he added .
