Rally México 2023




The ORLEN Rally Team crew of Kajetan Kajetanowicz and Maciej Szczepaniak finished Rally México in fourth position in the WRC2 classification and tenth overall, winning the WRC2 Challenger category! The Polish duo started their 2023 World Rally Championship campaign in style, aiming at yet another consecutive top three finish in the standings.



Kajetan Kajetanowicz and Maciej Szczepaniak started their season in Mexico – round three of this year’s championship. The WRC2 competitors are allowed to take part in maximum seven events, nominated by them to score points towards the final standings.


The Polish crew chose to begin their campaign in Mexico – where they competed three years ago. After completing 18 special stages (five were cancelled), the ORLEN Rally Team duo claimed fourth position in their category, finishing as the best non-factory crew – winning the WRC2 Challenger category!



– We start the season with first place in the Challenger classification, among non-factory crews, and with fourth position in the WRC2 standings – although I had hoped for more, for closer fight. Maybe we’ll be able to do it during our next rally. You know me and you know that I will do my best – and I know what we need to improve, I know our limitations. I have to calculate the risk because competing against factory crews is like fight of David against Goliath.


The whole ORLEN Rally Team have worked very well and we leave Mexico with smiles on our faces. It is a good beginning of the season. Thank you very much for support, for keeping your fingers crossed. Sometimes you had to wake up very early or go to sleep in the morning, supporting us on the stages. Now we are heading back home but of course I am already starting my preparations for the next round – Kajetan Kajetanowicz, triple European Rally Champion, said after the rally.



Starts of Kajetan Kajetanowicz are supported by titular partner of the ORLEN Rally Team – PKN ORLEN, as well as technical partner Delphi Technologies, Pirelli, ATC CARGO S.A., PLATINUM ORLEN OIL brand, QUAZAR LOTOS OIL brand and SJS S.A.
