Symtech Racing comes to the Lotos Rally as leader
The second round of the Polish Rally Championship takes place this weekend from June 6-7. Subaru Poland's official team, the Belgian outfit Symtech Racing, and its driver 'Kajto' Kajetanowicz are ready and eager for this latest adventure on a highly-competitive series..

"Kajto" ready for gravel

Based in the Gdansk region, the Lotos Rally is also the first gravel round of the championship. This marks a new challenge for 'Kajto' Kajetanowicz and Symtech Racing, following two days of gravel testing earlier this week.

After an excellent victory on the Elmot Rally, round one of the Polish Rally Championship, the victorious Symtech Racing Subaru Impreza WRX Sti STR09 was examined from top to bottom at post-event scrutineering. Naturally, everything was found to be in order – but the team is very much aware that it will be increasingly hard to keep winning overall against the S2000 cars, which are notably more competitive than conventional Group N machinery. Victory in the category nonetheless remains the objective for Symtech and Subaru Poland, whilst ensuring a top-five finish overall.

Wim De Boeck of Symtech Racing : « Our win on the Elmot Rally was no fluke, but we know full well that we will not always be able to keep winning. Our Subaru Impreza WRX Sti STR09 is competitive and reliable, while 'Kajto' is undoubtedly a really quick driver. We have to stay realistic: for Subaru Poland it's first and foremost essential that we win Group N. As for anything else, let's wait and see! During our pre-event test, 'Kajto' was able to benefit from some useful advice from a gravel expert, which proved valuable to him as he refined his driving style. We've all learnt a lot on this type of surface already and the experience has allowed us to work on a base gravel set-up for the car. In conclusion, we're all ready to do battle now! »

The Lotos Rally will also see Kajetanowicz collaborate with a new co-driver for the first time, the well-known Jarek Baran. The rally gets underway on Friday night with a spectator superspecial stage and is followed on Saturday and Sunday by 12 more stages in total. The event is scheduled to finish at 3pm on Sunday.
