Poland's Robert Kubica, whose Formula 1 career was put on hold after a near-fatal rally accident, will drive a Citroen rally car in two events in France and Italy in November 2012, the French automaker has announced.

Citroen said the former BMW-Sauber and Renault F1 driver would drive a C4 WRC car, similar to one that took Sebastien Loeb to many of his nine world titles, in the Rally di Como from November 15 - 17, 2012 and the Rallye du Var in France on the following weekend.

IN LOEB'S TYRE TRACKS


Kubica, 27, has not driven an F1 car since his accident in February, 2011 left him with severe arm and leg injuries.

However he won two minor rallies in Italy in September,2012 and has competed in the Rally du Var twice previously.

The Pole said in a statement: "I can't wait to drive a car that is quick and has been as successful as the C4 WRC.

"Rallying is one of my favourite forms of motorsport."

Kubica, a good friend of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, said in September he was still hoping to return to F1 and would not give up even if he might never be at the same physical level as before.
