Kubica was lucky to emerge unscathed from this rally crash

Whether it’s a case of tempting fate or otherwise, Robert Kubica has been lucky to emerge unscathed after crashing out of this weekend’s San Martino di Castrozza Rally.

Having made an incredible return to motorsport competition by taking part in – and winning! – a rally event earlier this month, Kubica slid his Subaru Impreza WRC car off the road and into the trees on Saturday.

Thankfully, he and his navigator Jakub Gerber were unhurt, according to a report in the Washington Post.

Kubica suffered life-threatening injuries – including a near-amputation of his right arm and multiple fractures – in a sickening accident at the Ronde di Andora rally in early 2011.
