The Goodwood Festival of Speed on 14-15 July see’s the return of popular racing driver Robert Kubica as he takes the wheel of a Lancia 037 as part of Martini’s 50th Anniversary.
Robert Kubica made his return to FORMULA ONE™, this year, signing as Williams Martini Racing’s Reserve and Development driver, overcoming his injuries sustained in a 2011 rally crash. The 2018 FORMULA ONE™ season has seen Robert get behind the wheel in pre-season testing, as well as more recently during a practice session in Barcelona. Robert’s vast racing experience is proving him to be an invaluable member of the Williams Martini Racing team assisting the team in developing the FW41.
At the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, celebrations for the 50th anniversary will focus around the MARTINI Terrazza, where there’ll be a fabulous MARTINI Racing car display including the Williams Martini Racing F1 car, Lancia Delta Integrale, Lancia LC2, a collection of Porsches and Colin McRae’s rally-winning Ford Focus.
The hugely popular driver made his public comeback at the Festival in 2017, “Robert is a great example of someone fighting for their dreams,” one of his compatriots told Goodwood during the 2017 Festival. “Every weekend was special when he was racing in F1. Seeing him back in an F1 car here at Goodwood is just fantastic. He is Poland’s first and only F1 driver and a national hero to us.”
Robert Kubica’s appearance, and a MARTINI Racing™ car display, featuring photo opportunities with the Williams Martini Racing F1 car, Lancia Delta Integrale and many more, are just some of the reasons to visit the MARTINI Terrazza.
Forming part of this celebration of MARTINI will be a great collection of some of the finest examples of the red, white and blue machines, including the Lancia LC2, a collection of Porsches and Colin McRae’s rally-winning Ford Focus.
For a second year, MARTINI® will also present the Drivers’ Club at the Festival, offering superb hospitality and a place for the drivers to relax ahead of their drives up the famous Hillclimb.
