Renault ace Robert Kubica to compete on blue riband event

Renault F1 star Robert Kubica will tackle the Monte Carlo Rally at the wheel of a Renault Clio R3 later this month.

The Polish driver has already contested two rallies with Renault since he departed the BMW F1 team at the end of last season, but the opening round of this year's Intercontinental Rally Challenge will be by far his biggest challenge yet.

Kubica's last event, the Rallye du Var, will give him some idea of what is to come on the Monte Carlo, as the French Championship round runs through similar terrain to the Monte, which gets underway from Valence on Tuesday January 19.

The grand prix winner finished 29th on the Rallye du Var, but crashed his Clio on the Taormina-Messina Rally in Sicily earlier in the year.
