2015 FIA European Rally Champion Kajetan Kajetanowicz has confirmed he will return to the series to defend his crown in 2016. The Polish driver will return in the Lotos Rally Team Ford Fiesta R5 that took him to championship success last year and is aiming to become the first driver since Luca Rosetti to win back to back titles.
Kajetanowicz was the model of consistency last season winning three events and securing four podium finishes, this season the Pole will attempt to win his home event in August as the series returns to Poland for Rally Rzeszowski, an event which Kaetanowicz has won on two separate occasions in the past.
“The 2016 FIA ERC calendar looks even more exciting, not only because we have two rounds which are so close for the Polish fans,” he said.
“Again we can choose from 10 extremely diverse rallies. Each one gives me and Jarek a chance to develop ourselves, each one can make me a better driver and this is my goal.
“I am happy that I can work with the professionals who do not lack motivation. They believe in me, support me and I do not want to disappoint them. Our progress over the last few years was big but everyone who got to know the capabilities of LOTOS Rally Team is perfectly aware that we will pull out all the stops to do what we love in an even better way.”
The 2016 FIA European Rally Championship kicks off with Rally Liepaja in February.
