Former Formula 1 driver Robert Kubica will spend a full season in the world championship on races on endurance in the team ByKolles and will perform including the prestigious daily marathon “24 hours of Le Mans.”
Partner of the winner of the Grand Prix of Canada 2008 will Oliver Webb. With the third pilot ByKolles, which is the only private team in LMP1, not yet determined.
At the end of last year Kubica has been testing in Bahrain, and also acted in the “Dubai 24 hours” driving a Porsche GT3.
“After leaving the rally I was looking for something as close as possible to Formula 1, and found it in the form of LMP1, – quotes Kubica GPUpdate.net. – After the end of last season I passed on the tests his first laps behind the wheel of the CLM P1 / 01 and very quickly felt more confident. I have no doubt that experience can make this machine even more.
I look forward to the prologue in Monza and the start of the season at Silverstone.
Most of the tracks, which are the stages of WEC, well, I’m familiar with the Formula 1. The only exception is the ring Sarthe in Le Mans. I really heard many good things about the race there, so really looking forward to his first start.”
