Rally Estonia, round seven of the 2022 World Rally Championship, has come to an end. Kajetan Kajetanowicz and Maciej Szczepaniak competed in wet conditions, with stages turned into muddy ordeal.



The Polish crew have finished their previous rallies in top three and opted for efficient approach in Estonia, limiting errors and risk to minimum. This strategy brought them a solid haul of points for fifth position in the WRC2 standings!



The 2022 World Rally Championship campaign of Kajetan Kajetanowicz and Maciej Szczepaniak is well underway. They started their season with second position in Croatia Rally, repeating this success next time out, in Portugal. Afterwards the LOTOS Rally Team duo made their first appearance in iconic, unique Safari Rally – achieving an incredible success, winning in their category.



Following their African trip, the Polish crew took part in Rally Estonia, known as the temple of speed. This event, famous for very fast stages, was included in the World Rally Championship calendar for the third time. This year an additional challenge appeared – it was raining during each leg, raising the difficulty level for all competitors.


Kajetanowicz and Szczepaniak took a strategic approach, avoiding unnecessary mistakes which could cause a lot of harm over the course of championship fight. Their assured and consistent performance brought them solid points for fifth position in the WRC2 standings, allowing them to stay in the fight for the title.



– We have completed a challenging edition of Rally Estonia, scoring very important points in the championship classification. We have not committed any serious error and here even a small moment of lost concentration might ruin the whole effort. We are in second position midway through the season and the fight goes on. Now we focus on the events ahead of us.


As the LOTOS Rally Team we have worked hard but not everything has been working. We know what must be improved and for sure we will learn our lessons. Thanks to Maciek and my partners for their support, thanks to the fans along the stages and those who kept their fingers for us back at their homes.



It’s not a secret that I have rarely been back at home in recent weeks so many thanks to my family for their understanding. I come back to Poland motivated, ready for more work – says Kajetan Kajetanowicz, the LOTOS Rally Team driver.




Starts of Kajetan Kajetanowicz are supported by strategic partner of the LOTOS Rally Team – Grupa LOTOS, technical partner Delphi Technologies, as well as Pirelli, SJS Driving Experience and Grupa Sikora.
