Krzysztof Holowczyc first Pole to score a point in WRC

28.06.2009: Stobart VK M-Sport Ford driver Krzysztof Holowczyc said: ďItís been a fantastic rally and Iím very happy with the result

Stobart VK M-Sport Ford driver Krzysztof Holowczyc said:


“It’s been a fantastic rally and I’m very happy with the result.  I have become the first Polish driver to score a drivers’ point and to do it here on my home rally is a very special feeling; we’ve also scored our best WRC finish ever which was a big surprise at the end. 

I have to thank the fans, I have never seen so many people and flags and their energy and the atmosphere has really helped me along.  It’s five years since I have driven a WRC car and they have improved so much, this Focus is incredible and it’s helped me to drive in a very clean and precise way.”

 
Stobart VK M-Sport Ford team principal Malcolm Wilson said:


All cars and crews were in good shape when they needed to push to improve their position today and I’m especially pleased for Krzysztof to be the first Pole to score a point in the WRC; it’s great that he has done that as a part of the Stobart team.  The rally has been really good preparation for Finland so things are looking very positive for the next event.”


Stobart Group CEO Andrew Tinkler said:


I must congratulate Krzysztof on his points and it’s great that he’s achieved this as part of our team.”
