I started my rally racing journey when I was 17 years old. Wojciech Musial who was one of my friends as well as one of the best Polish rally drivers inspired me to get involved in this sport. He and his driving experience impressed me to the extent that not even a month after I received my drivers license I co-driven in my first event in Olkusz, Poland. Him and my other friends like Michal Paciej kept me going in rally racing direction.
When I came to US in 1998 I was devastated thinking that my rallying dream was over. However, I quickly recovered, went back and tried to enter "Polish rally World" again. Let’s just say that it did not work out the way I planned and so I was back in US a month later.
In early 1999 I met Jerzy Bajno and Polish Automobile Society of USA. Soon after that I entered my first rallycross event in East Durham, NY winning the class.
Throughout the ten years of my rallying experience I was associated with many teams obtaining skills on both sides of the car as a co-driver (Krzysztof Tajer, Piotr Motykiewicz, Jerzy Bajno, Eugeniusz Michniuk, Wojciech Okula, Rafal Listopad, Maciej Przybysz, practices - Piotr Malaszuk, Sylwester Stepniewski, Arkadiusz Gruszka) as well as a driver (numerous rallycross and rally sprint events with frequent class wins). In June 2004 I joined Wojciech Okula and his WO Rally Team and became his first crew chief. I was responsible for public relations, logistics and service. WORT did many events and showed great potential at both regional and national levels.
Most of 2007 I spent with Bergen Woodworks Rally Team co-driving for Rafal Listopad in VW Golf, geting top class results and some top 10s overall and finally third place in Eastern States Rally Championship in Modified 2 class.
