PPD Motorsport focuses on the finish at Oregon Trail Rally

Piotr Wiktorczyk, a Polish driver competing in the Rally America Championship in the competitive Super Production class, will take part in another west coast event of the championship this weekend. The Oregon Trail Rally will be fourth event of the 2009 National Championship.

While being co-driven by Grzegorz Dorman from the beginning of the season, Wiktorczyk, who resides in Chicago, dominates so far in the class championship. After three consecutive podiums and a great win at Olympus Rally in Washington, Wiktorczyk has a 20 point lead over his closest rival in the class, but he also fights this season to be invited to XGames 15 this summer. To get a chance to compete in Los Angeles in front of thousands of spectators, Wiktorczyk has to gain at least another 4 points, which means he needs to move into the sixth overall spot in the championship classification.

The Oregon Trail Rally will start for the team from Illinois on Thursday, when its members and their Subaru Impreza WRX STI will attend a Fan Fest specially organized for this event. Rally fans will be able to talk to the drivers and take a close look on their cars in the very heart of downtown Portland. Then competitors will begin racing on Portland International Raceway on Friday and finish the event on the Sunday afternoon in Hood River.

Piotr Wiktorczyk: “I think for the first time ever I’m very nervous about finishing an event. I know that finishing will get us into X Games, but on the other hand I really want to have a good fight with Matt and Dave. We had a good battle on Day One of Olympus, but different problems put both of them out of the rally. Hopefully we can have a good battle again and finish the rally at the same time!!!”

Grzegorz Dorman: “At Oregon we are focusing on getting the car to the finish with no major problems. Those are again new stages for us, where if we get a lot of rain it might get a little tricky. Three weeks after Oregon we have another event for the championship in Pennsylvania, and crashing the car here automatically would erase our chances to start there due to the already tight budget that we run on. We are hoping that our good results this year.”
