2015 FIA European Rally Championship leader Kajetan Kajetanowicz heads to round nine, the SEAJETS Acropolis Rally, with a real chance of clinching the ERC title. The LOTOS Rally Team driver, who leads the series by 62 points, only needs 16 points to become champion.
Kajetanowicz won the Internationale Janner Rallye at the start of the year and a victory in the ERC class on the Cyprus Rally last month as well as scoring a number of podium finishes throughout the year.
“It seems that with the advantage we worked out in previous rallies there is only one short step we need to take in order to reach the coveted goal,” said the Pole. “However, the only short thing is the time we have for work and preparation before this exhausting battle. The faith of the Polish fans and their support sometimes help me to forget about fatigue and to focus on my target.”
Craig Breen is the only person who can challenge the Pole for the championship win and the Peugeot Academy driver will take confidence from his victory here last year. The Irishman needs to rediscover the form that took him to a hat-trick of wins earlier in the season.
“I head to Greece with a lot of confidence knowing our speed last year, and hopefully some of the stages will be the same,” said Breen. “Being realistic, we need a win there to keep our championship hopes alive, so we will be doing all in our power to do that!”
Crews will have to tackle nine stages on the famous event with over 200 km of competitive action to negotiate over two days.
