The Polish motorsports speedy Robert Kubica is set to test a Mercedes DTM car, Auto Motor und Sport reports.
Kubica will test HWA-Mercedes DTM car at Valencia next week, alongside with race driver Gary Paffett, he is also part of McLaren F1 test driver line-up.
This is the first time the Pole on test track, since recovering from terrible accident in a 2011 rallying crash at Italy following his right arm and hand heavily injured.
“What I need to do now is to compete as often as possible, as this is the best way to continue my recovery.” formerly Kubica said
“My goal is to be competing as often as possible, in whatever category I can find a seat and improve the mobility of my right arm. If, in the end, I’ll be fit enough to return to Formula One, we’ll have a go; if not, I’ll continue racing in other categories.”
The HWA team is part-owned by Williams F1 CEO Toto Wolff, who has taken an interest in Kubica’s recovery. If the test goes well, there is a good chance that Kubica will compete in the German DTM series this season, combining the programme with a number of rallies in the European Rally Championship.
