Robert Kubica parts way with sponsor LOTOS


Robert Kubica has parted ways with his main sponsor LOTOS, as confirmed by an announcement made on the companies Emocje do pelna Facebook page, which keeps fans updated about the Polish athletes it sponsors.

It is unclear how this will affect the Polish drivers plans for 2016 having already announced a cut back on his World Rally Championship commitments.

The (translated) message posted on the page Emocje do pelna (Emotions to the full) reads, “Together with Robert Kubica the final decision was taken at the end of our three-year collaboration. Since 2013, Robert supported brand LOTOS House not only success but also its active in advertising campaigns and social.

“His colourful racing accomplishments have been an inspiration to millions of fans in Poland and around the world follow his career. Robert Kubica now intends to carry out his professional new plans. Fingers crossed for his next plans Robert and we wish him much further success.”

Recently Kubica took part in a 12-hour sports car race at Mugello alongside WRC driver Martin Prokop after admitting that he was looking for a new challenge, it is rumoured that Prokop and Kubica could form a WRC2 team that would see them competing in the support category for the main championship.

In 2013 Kubica took five victories in the WRC 2 championship on his way to taking the title before graduating in to the top WRC class. Despite taking stage victories Kubica has never been able to piece together a perfect rally and only managed a top-5 finish once in 2013.
