Robert Kubica wins first WRC2 event

Robert Kubica wins WRC2 Acropolis Rally

A quick shout out to Robert Kubica who won the WRC2 category at the Acropolis Rally on the weekend. It’s just his second WRC2 start, which is for near-production spec 4WD showroom cars.

Driving a Ctiroën DS3 RRC the 28-year-old Pole took the rally lead on the opening stage and never looked back, dominating throughout the event and easing himself to a win of almost 90 seconds.

“Yes, it’s a great day for me”, Kubica said after his win. “For sure, it has been a very, very difficult weekend. I think Acropolis is an extremely tough rally, especially for someone like me who has twenty years’ experience of racing on a circuit! It’s the total opposite of what I have been used to.

“There are many things for me to learn still, but it has been a great learning experience and a very productive weekend. I’m now looking forward to Rally Sardegna, where I can put what I have learned this weekend to good use.”

Amazing. I hope he gets back into a competitive F1 car, and if not then wins a full blown WRC event in the future. He is a truly great talent.
