"Cars are my passion"

2000 season started with fantastic news. Kulig/Baran team, as one of very few in the world, drove Ford Focus WRC. Unfortunately, in Winter Rally, they had some problems with the car. Further performances went great and fans could enjoy the battle between Kulig and Kuzaj. Janusz, spectacularly, won the Warsaw Rally. However, in Cracow Rally Kuzaj was the winner. Further performances in RSMP ended with Marlboro-Mobil1 team victories. They lost only once to Henrik Lundgaard. Winning Cormorant Rally and defeating Krzysztof Hołowczyc was quite a big surprise.
