Proven formula of ORLEN Baja Poland

(23.07.2019) This year Baja Poland will be held for 11th time. Once again Polish event is a round of FIA World Cup for Cross Country Bajas. After successful jubilee in previous season, the organisers did their best to prepare even better event, both for competitors and spectators. In 2019 season ORLEN Baja Poland will take place during the last weekend of August (29.08-01.09), while hospitable city of Szczecin is where the Polish World Cup counter will be based.

- As usual we focus our efforts on improving the event, both in organizational and sporting matters. Thanks to our cooperation with authorities of Szczecin, picturesque Lasztownia Island will be a rally base once again. This an unique place, where we have a perfect conditions to host all the service crews and run start and finish ceremony. What is more, in West Pomeranian Voivodeship we have world class cross country special stages and many competitors wait to compete in Poland. This year, the route is even longer. There are as many as 515 competitive kilometres. The main part is of course the rally battle at the military range in Drawsko Pomorskie. We managed to prepare some new sections in this stage, what makes the challenge even greater. The stages in Szczecin and Dobra municipality are mostly unchanged, as they were praised by the spectators, who can access them in a convenient way. The entry list will be published a week before the event starts, but we already know that all of the FIA World Cup top crews are about to compete in ORLEN Baja Poland. Moreover, our event count towards national cross country series, which means that many local crews will enter Baja Poland as well – said Marcin Fiejdasz, ORLEN Baja Poland clerk of the course.

Jakub Przygoński, the winner of previous edition of Baja Poland and 2018 FIA World Cup for Cross Country Rallies is considered as one of the top contenders for the victory. ORLEN Team driver holds third place in current standings of FIA World Cup for Cross Country Bajas.

However, ORLEN Baja Poland is not only the round of World Cup. The most important Polish cross country event count towards FIA CEZ Championship, Polish Cross Country Championship, Czech Cross Country Championship, Dacia Duster Elf Cup and Polish Cross Country Cup. This means that more than 100 vehicles are expected on entry list.
