WRC NEWS >> The Stewards of the Rajd Polski announced in Geneva on october 27 that the protest launched by second placed Michal Solowow against the provisional winner Kajetan Kajetanowicz, was “ill- founded on the grounds that all investigated parts are in conformity with the regulations” and that Kajetanowicz correctly had won the rally. The issues concerned brakes and turbocharger on Kajetanowicz’s car. This means that Solowow’s personal dream of being declared a rally champion before he was 50 years old has gone. This event was a qualifying round of the national championship of Solowow’s home country Poland, and Kajetanowicz has now won that title. Solowow’s team Cersanit Rally Team declared they would not appeal the decision. End of the Solowow dream Adream has come true for 61 year-old Polish rally enthusiast and local Nissan dealer Jerzy Mazur when he officially opened a rally section at the local Museum of Mining and Automobile Sport in his Lower Silesia home town of Walbrzych. The occasion was to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the first ‘Rajd Polski’, Polish Rally. Walbrzych lies close to the Czech border, the area where the Polish Rally was run for many years when it was based at Wroclaw. Many exhibits honour the achievements of the two specially great, late Polish drivers, Janusz Kulig and Marian Bublewicz, but one of the most remarkable exhibits is a burned out wreck. This was the Toyota Celica destroyed on a rally in Germany during the otherwise victorious 1997 European championship campaign of Krzysztof Holowczyc. A monument for Kulig and Bublewicz was also unveiled a few kilometres away from Walbrzych alongside the pave stretch of road which featured on the celebrated Walim special stage.
