it is Not easy to call the attention on the day in which FIA and ACO announced the entry list for the WEC and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but Robert Kubica is without a doubt one of the protagonists of the day after confirming your program with ByKolles. The Polish pilot, who already raced with the team in the ‘rookie test’ of Abu Dhabi, has finally decided to take the plunge and tackle your first big adventure in resistance with a prototype. Robert Kubica will be flying the renowned ENSO CLM P1/01 with engine Nissan that will put the structure in liza within the category, LMP1-L, destined to prototypes without component hybrid.
Stranger in the event, which was held by the ACO and the FIA, Robert Kubica testing today an Abarth 124 Rally, the new car rally Fiat group built to compete within the category R-GT. True to its essence, the Polish was back to taste the honey of a discipline that has hardly been able to enjoy since his participation in the Monte carlo Rally, 2016, and all the couple’s announcement of its most ambitious programme since he had the accident in the fateful Rally Cita di Andora. A project that will be accompanied by britain’s Oliver Webb and a third pilot that is yet to be confirm.
all in all, after confirmed the news, Robert Kubica wrote: “After my stay in the rallies, a long time ago, looking for something that was as similar as possible to a Formula 1. That is what I have found with the LMP1. At the end of last season I was able to do my first laps with the CLM P1/01. I felt comfortable quickly and I was able to increase my pace. I am able to get still more performance to the car. I really want to be able to ride in the Prologue of Monza and live the start of the season at Silverstone”.
In this line, the Polish I added some keys on her new program: “ByKolles Racing is a very professional team and I know that has made significant improvements to the car throughout the season. I am happy to be a part of all of this. The WEC runs on circuits that I already know most of my times in the Formula 1, with the exception of Le Mans. In spite of this, I’ve only heard say good things about the 24 Hours of Le Mans and The Sarthe. I’m excited about my first participation in this race”.
