The former Formula One driver, whose career was cut short by a serious injury in 2011 sustained while rallying, is also set to feature in another ERC rally later in the year, as well as compete in the WRC 2 Championship.
He will drive a Citroen DS3 Regional Rally Car.
“I’m really pleased now to be able to return to top-level racing,” said the 28-year-old. “Taking part in Rally Islas Canarias will be an interesting challenge for me. I can’t wait to start racing, but I haven’t set myself any specific target. I still have a lot to learn in rallying and to improve I will need to rack up the miles on the stages.”
Kubica will be driving a car with a modified hydraulic paddleshift, designed to make changing gear easier in the wake of his arm and hand injuries.
François Ribeiro, Motorsport Development Director of Eurosport Events, said: “We are sure Robert can be a contender in the ERC. We are looking forward to welcoming him to Gran Canaria.”
The rally begins on Friday 22 March.
