it’s Been just over five years since his fatal accident in the Rally di Andora and finally, Robert Kubica returns to the circuit. The Polish pilot, which has paralyzed his programme in the WRC after contesting the Monte carlo Rally, and to cancel your registration in Sweden, will play their first test away from a race car or a vehicle rally. A new challenge that results in the participation of Robert Kubica in the 12 Hours of Mugello. The ex-pilot of Formula 1 will take to the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3 to contest this appointment between days 18 and 19 march.
Robert Kubica will team with Martin Prokop, great and well-known Polish after sharing for the past years, the service park of WRC. In fact, both drivers have been two of the greatest exponents of the private pilots in the last two seasons of the World, competing both with two units of the Ford Fiesta RS WRC. On this occasion, go from being rivals to be teammates on a Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3 that manages the computer’s own Martin Prokop, every time that the Czech rider seems ready to test in various disciplines such as the Dakar or the resistance.
The 12 Hours of Mugello is the second event of the 24H Series, an event organized by Creventic, but recognized by the FIA. In the 24 Hours of Dubai, the inaugural run of the contest, the victory went to the Audi R8 LMS piloted by Alain Ferte, Michael Meadows, Stuard Leonard and Laurens Vanthoor. In any case, this timely participation in the 12 Hours of Mugello seems to not bind to any of the two pilots. Robert Kubica still does not have defined their programme in the WRC or in any other category, while Martin Prokop played tests for specific resistance, five rallies in the WRC and will prepare its second participation in the Dakar.
