The end has been announced for one of championship rallying’s most recent lasting partnerships.

Kajetan Kajetanowicz and co-driver Jaroslav Baran have announced the end of their nine-season rallying career together, during which they became the only crew to have won the FIA European Rally Championship three successive times, and four Polish titles.

They won 31 events together, all with the support of Lotos.

It is not known what led to the decision, though there are speculations about the uncertain consequence of the proposed merger between the two Polish state controlled companies Lotos and Orlen.
