Two million people visit Gran Canaria every year. Except this year. This year it's two million and one. I'm the one. The lucky one, that is. Lucky because I'm going to watch Robert Kubica complete his comeback to international motorsport competition.
This week's Canaries Rally, the third round of the European Rally Championship, is an important event in its own right, but once Kubica announced he would be in Las Palmas in his Citroen DS3 RRC, it became even more important. Gran Canaria became the only island off the coast of Africa to be seen on this weekend.
