“NOTHING BUT POSITIVE MEMORIES” OF RALLY RZESZOW FOR ERC CHAMPION

The first appearance of Rally Rzeszow on the FIA European Rally Championship provides plenty of happy memories for the home hero Kajetan Kajetanowicz. The reigning European Champion won the asphalt event in both 2012 and 2013 while competing in the Polish championship. This week’s event will be the first time the ERC has visited Kajetanowicz’s home country since he won Rally Poland in 2013. “Rally Rzeszow brings me nothing but positive memories – just like my first stage win ever or excellent organisation of this event,” said the LOTOS Rally Team driver. “Today I am a different driver and sportsman but one thing remains the same: my love for this work has not changed since I started doing this. This is why, thinking about the championship at the same time, I will drive this rally with all my heart and I am sure that my team have the same plan.”
