Robert Kubica and Jaime Alguersuari are on the entry list for the 2009 CIK-FIA KZ1 karting world cup at Sarno in Italy next month.
Kubica is entering is his own kart but according to Mary-Ann Horley of Kartlink he has had difficulties in testing:
What I’ve heard from testing is that Kubica was having carb problems
and was about 1.5s slower than Francesco Laudato who has been champion several
times, and has switched engines from what the team usually use.
Kubica went karting last month with Felipe Massa, Timo Glock, Sebastian Vettel, Nelson Piquet, Tonio Liuzzi, Christian Klien, Sebastian Buemi and Michael Schumacher – the seven-times champion was fastest.
The BMW driver also took on Fernando Alonso last year after the pair finished first and second in the Japanese Grand Prix.
