Stéphane Peterhansel is contesting this event with his new co-pilot Edouard Boulanger for the first time.
Because of the narrow track conditions the two Frenchmen start in a MINI ALL4 Racing.
Krzysztof Holowczyc has already won his home Baja six times.
Three different winning cars were entered by X-raid: BMW X3 CC, MINI ALL4 Racing, MINI JCW Rally.
SVEN QUANDT: “The whole X-raid team is very happy that we can finally compete in a rally again. The past months have been hard for all of us. Of course, we take great care to comply with all hygiene rules.”
STÉPHANE PETERHANSEL: “At the Baja Poland I will start with a new co-pilot and unfortunately not with Andrea. At the beginning of the year we had planned to do some rallies together to prepare for the upcoming Dakar. But Corona stopped our plans. As we now miss the necessary preparation, we decided to stop this project and consider our World Cup title a great finish. Now Edouard will sit next to me – a young Frenchman and great sportsman. I think that we will work well together.
I am really looking forward to the Baja – after eight months of not being behind the wheel of a race car. But to be honest, the changeover was not that big for me. I am used to not doing many rallies during the season. I started at Baja Poland a few years ago and I have good memories of the event. I am also looking forward to seeing the team again.”
