Biography[edit]

In the World Rally Championship, Hołowczyc was active in the late 1990s, usually competing in a Subaru Impreza WRC. His seventh place at the 1998 Rally Argentina marked the best-ever result for a Polish driver in the series.[2]

After the Rally Poland, which he has won three times, returned to the WRC calendar for the 2009 season, Hołowczyc signed to make a one-off return in a Ford Focus WRC run by Stobart M-Sport Ford. He finished sixth in the 2009 Rally Poland and scored Poland's second WRC points ever.[3]

Hołowczyc took part in the Dakar Rally and finished 60th (2005), 6th (2009), 5th (2011), 10th (2012) . He also took part but did not finish the Rally due to car failure in 2006, 2010 and due to crash in 2007 and 2013 .
