Kajetanowicz Baran


Kajetan Kajetanowicz - born 5 March 1979, three-time Polish Champion in the general Polish Rally Championship classification, 2010‒2012.

Winner of the Polish Rally twice in a row (in the 2010 and 2011 seasons), the first Pole to accomplish this feat in 87 years. The current Polish Champion is one of the few drivers in the world to effectively compete with Super 2000 drivers using a Group N car.

Kajetan started his Polish Championship racing brilliantly. In his debut, he achieved victory in his class. In 2008, with co-driver Maciej Wisławski, he won the title of runner-up in the RSMP general classification and was the fastest Pole in the national championship. Two years ago, with Jarek Baran as co-driver, he won three races, including the most prestigious Polish Rally, and earned the Polish Championship in the general classification. For most of the 2011 season the driver of the LOTOS Dynamic Rally Team claimed the leader’s spot in the Polish championship. A second consecutive victory in the Polish Rally and an excellent performance in the final round of the national championship again brought Kajetan a national championship in the general classification.

Kajetan Kajetanowicz is also a long-time instructor at a school for improved driving. For years, he has promoted safety and successfully urged drivers to improve their skills behind the wheel. The popular Kajto is also a repeat winner of the prestigious poll for best race driver organised by Radio Luz and Toprally service.


Jarosław Baran - born 24 December 1967, is one of the most experienced rally co-drivers in Poland. Since 1992, he has raced continuously in the colours of the Automobile Club of Cracow.

Despite coming from a family with a strong rally tradition, his career got off to a less than promising start. With help from his father, he took part in his first rally as a driver, but never reached the finish line because ... he couldn’t find it. As a result he decided to immerse himself in the subject so thoroughly that he now has more than 200 starts to his credit, more than half of them Polish Rally Championship races.

He has won more than twenty titles in different classes and groups, including six Polish Championship overall titles. For many years he was the partner of Janusz Kulig, with whom he won the 2001 title of runner-up to the European Champion. He has also raced with Waldemar Doskocz, Sebastian Frycz, Michał Kościuszko and Leszek Kuzaj, among others.

Since 2009 he has been part of Kajetan Kajetanowicz’s crew. Together they have achieved many successes, above all winning the Polish championship title three times along with two victories in the Polish Rally (Polish round of the European Championship).

For years, he has shared his knowledge in the Schools for Co-drivers project, which is why he’s often called "professor".
