Robert Kubica set for F1 run at Goodwood Festival of Speed


Robert Kubica is set to take to Goodwood’s Hillclimb during next weekend’s Festival of Speed, event organisers have announced.

Kubica will demonstrate the Renault-powered E20 – the car used by the team under its Lotus guise in the 2012 Formula 1 season – on Sunday 2 July.

The outing comes a few weeks after Kubica returned to Formula 1 machinery for the first time in six years, completing 115 laps during a private test at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia.

Kubica raced in Formula 1 between 2006 and 2010, but sustained serious injuries in a rally crash in February 2011, which limited the mobility of his right arm.

Kubica has since returned to competitive action in rallying and last year made a comeback to circuit racing, competing in a handful of endurance events.
