Poland returns to the FIA ​​Motorsport Games for the second time. At the inaugural event in 2019, Team Poland were among the medalists, with Artur Janosz and Andrzej Lewandowski taking silver in the GT Cup.

Poland is now confirmed as one of 90 nations set to join the 2022 event, with its squad led by team captain Jakub “Kuba” Przygoński.

Przygoński started his career on two wheels in the famous Dakar rally, finishing sixth in 2014, before switching to four wheels for major off-road rallies and finishing fourth in the Dakar in 2019 and 2021. He is now an accomplished competitor of Drifting and will represent Poland in this discipline at the FIA ​​Motorsport Games.

“I am very grateful to PZM for entrusting me with this honorable and responsible role as captain of the Poland team,” said Przygoński.
