Polish ex-F1 driver spent seasons 2012-2015 in rallies and now he is close to comeback to regular racing. Kubica will team alongside Christophe Hamon in the Renault Sport Racing car with the Duqueine Engineering team on legendary Spa circuit.
Robert was invited to drive Renault Sport R.S. 01 by Renault and agreed to that. To get comfortable with the car Robert and the Duqueine Engineering team joined up this week at the Ales circuit in the South of France for a shakedown.
“I quickly felt at ease at the wheel of the R.S. 01, and even on a twisty track like Ales its qualities were immediately evident, especially the stopping power granted by the carbon discs. I was impressed by how late into the corner you can brake and by the absence of body roll, even when you push to make the most of the available grip. I look forward to driving it at Spa, where all the downforce the car can generate will also come into play" - said Kubica for renaultsport.com.
Each round of this series consist from two 90-minute practices, two 20-minute qualification sessions, 70-minute endurance race and 25-minute sprint. We should get live streaming from this race in the Internet.
