latest report says Kubica will drive C4 during two rallies:

Citroen will now provide him with one of its C4s, the predecessor to the current DS3 WRC, for the Rally di Como in Italy on 15-17 November and France's Rallye du Var a week later.

It's testament to the faith in Robert's ability that a variety of top teams are willing to offer him cars, tests etc., I hope he can have a few strong runs and get to learn the car for a potential outing at Monte Carlo :)

Of course, how dense of me! I keep forgetting that Monte Carlo isn't part of the IRC any more, but then the C4 still wouldn't be allowed would it? Well, that's my brain fade for the day :lol:

They only do commercial deals - if he brings money then they'll provide him with one. It wouldn't surprise me if Citroen have offered him the C4.

As for the Monte - he could do it in a DS3 WRC, and is using the C4 getting used to a modern WRC car. Rallye du Var is often used as a shakedown for the Monte.

I wonder if we will see any Orlen or Lotto stickers on the car.

Orlen? Give me a break... Robert won't work with them, not after what happened at the beginning of his professional career.

What do you think about this:
http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/104105
I'd like to see him doing very good but I have to admit I'm worried a litle bit about his safety. It's not about him driving too risky, just genuine concern.

worth following: https://twitter.com/TROJKAdaMalecki

Polish radio journalist, he is there and makes a lot of photos, will make some interviews. No motorsport expert for autosport BB standards, but big fan of Robert. And he knows difference between racing and rallying, which makes him an expert for Polish standards :lol:

He's running Michelins (with BF Goodrich branding) with Pirelli stickers on the car again.....

Maybe they're old tyres (which the BF branding would imply) and he'll have new pirellis for the start but that would defeat the point of the shakedown as theyre very different tyres to drive on.....

I believe it is a photo right after driving out of the truck, I don't think tyres are in shakedown/rally spec.

I see that Robert's signature changed a little bit (probably because he has done it with his left hand.

Doubt it. He's probably very left hand capable by now.. It's just not an easy garment to sign mid air, assuming.
