Robert Kubica will race for ART Grand Prix for 2020 DTM series
ART Grand Prix have a history of competing within many forms of motorsport and are an established name in motorsport. They have competed in 2015 and 16 in the DTM series and are now back in the 2020 season as a private customer team running a BMW M4 DTM.
Driving for them will be Polish driver Robert Kubica, a man who needs no introduction, and is very excited about driving in the DTM series. He has shared his appeal after the test at Jerez de la Frontera, he said "The DTM has appealed to me for a long time – and the test in December at Jerez de la Frontera really gave me a taste for more."

ART Grand Prix team principal Sébastien Philippe said "This project is important to us and we have been putting a lot of energy into it over the winter. It is with great pride that we will undertake it with the ambition to honour a historic car manufacturer, BMW, which has won several titles in the most demanding passenger car championship. Our goal will also be to accompany Robert Kubica, who is about to write a new page in his already incredibly rich motorsport career." He continued "Our last participation in the DTM series dates all the way back to 2015/16, so ART Grand Prix will need to relearn the inner workings of this high-level championship. Our objectives will be modest at the start of the season, but with the determination of our team, I hope that we will progress from the start of the season to fight with the frontrunners."
This is big news on many levels. First Robert Kubica is behind the wheel again and will give his best in another form of motorsport. Second, ART Grand Prix is back in DTM and they have added themselves to grow that form of motorsport. And lastly, for the first time a private customer team who will run a BMW M4 DTM will compete against the factory BMW DTM team - BMW Turbo Power.
