Renault driver Robert Kubica is set to make another foray into the world of rallying at this weekend's Rallye d'Antibes in Southern France.

Kubica has shown a growing interest in rallying and earlier this year completed 4km of the Monte Carlo Rally before retiring with engine failure. This weekend's event will take place on some of the same roads and makes up the penultimate round of the FIA's European rally series.

Kubica will be behind the wheel of a Renault Clio S1600 in the A6 class, which is made up of 13 other entrants mainly driving Clios and Citroen C2s.

Seven-time World Rally champion Sebastien Loeb won the event in 2001, which has been held every year since 1966.
