Robert Kubica to take part in the Rallye du Var in Clio Renault Sport R3

The Renault F1 Team's 2010 driver, Robert Kubica, will take part in the Rallye du Var (27-29 November) behind the wheel of a Clio Renault Sport R3 Maxi.

Just two weeks after his first experience in a Clio Renault Sport R3 on the roads of the Rally Taormina-Messina in Sicily, Robert Kubica will take part in the Rallye du Var, the final round of the French Championship and the Clio R3 West European Trophy.

"I'm interested in all categories of motorsport and I particularly like rally," confirmed Robert Kubica. "It's a very demanding and spectacular category and I have been thinking about participating in a rally for quite a while so joining the Renault F1 Team has created the perfect opportunity to try this out."

"I will approach the event cautiously, without any particular objective," continued Robert. "The roads in the south of France are as nice as they are challenging and I will try to enjoy it as much as I can behind the wheel of the Clio Renault Sport R3 Maxi of Team Chazel."

Jean-Francois Caubet, Managing Director for Renault F1 Team, commented: "As the team continues with its preparations for the start of the 2010 Formula One season, we look forward to seeing Robert taking part in the rally behind the wheel of the Clio Renault Sport R3. Rally is a category which promotes interaction between drivers and spectators and I'm sure Robert will have many fans supporting him on the stages."

Winner of the 2005 World Series Formula Renault 3.5, Robert Kubica will also be cheered on by his most recent successor as 2009 winner, Bertrand Baguette from Belgium, will be at the Rallye du Var to support the Polish driver.
