Kubica enters Dubai 24H in Porsche GT3
5 January 2017 – Ex-Formula 1 driver Robert Kubica has announced that he will take part in the upcoming Dubai 24 Hour race at the Dubai Autodrome, as the Pole continues his circuit-racing return.
Kubica, now 32, will pilot Porsche's GT3 car in the mid-January event.
"I would like to confirm that I will do a race in Dubai on January 12-14. I will join a national team in a Porsche GT3 car and I will try some 24-hour racing," Kubica posted on social media.
At the end of last year, Kubica appeared at the World Endurance Championship's rookie test in Bahrain, in the ByKolles LMP1 car, as he assessed his racing options for the future.
Over the course of 2016, Kubica competed in several circuit events – the 12 Hours of Mugello, the Renault Sport Trophy round at Spa-Francorchamps and the 6 Hours of Vallelunga.
Kubica's Formula 1 career was ended by a serious rally crash in early 2011, while contracted to Renault, before he returned to competition in rallying, taking the WRC2 title in 2013.
