Together with the LOTOS Rally Team, Kajetanowicz pocketed 176 points enough for them to lead the standings. Kajetanowicz heads to the next round with a 76-point advantage over Ford Fiesta driver Alexey Lukyanuk who scored 100 points. Last year, Kajetanowicz won the ERC Gravel Master award while the Ice Master award went to Robert Kubica.
