HOME ERC VICTORY MAYBE AS JOYOUS AS TITLE FOR KAJETANOWICZ

Kajetan Kajetanowicz says the joy he got from a home win on Rally Rzeszow last weekend was perhaps as great as it was for winning the FIA European Rally Championship title. The LOTOS Rally Team driver defeated asphalt ace Bryan Bouffier to win the 25th edition of the asphalt rally – the ERC’s first round in Poland for three years. The result moves him a big step closer to retaining his series title, increasing his lead to 76 points with three rounds remaining. “I can safely say that my joy today might be as great as when I clinched the European Championship title,” Kajetanowicz explained. He added: “I’m absolutely delighted. It was a perfect weekend for me and we did everything right. We are leading the championship yes but the important thing is that we have finally won a rally.”
