Marcin Slobodzian


Date of birth : 21/02/1992

Who is he? Słobodzian has enjoyed a rapid – and diverse – rise since embarking on his competition career and has the honour of heading Subaru Poland Rally Team’s attack on PZM Rally Poland as the title-winning squad returns to FIA European Rally Championship action.

What’s he done before now? He won two Polish hillclimb titles before switching to the Renault Clio Central Europe Cup circuit racing series. He started rallying in 2016, competing in a Polish regional cup aboard a Subaru Impreza N14, before joining Subaru Poland Rally Team for 2017 as part of the outfit’s mission to help young drivers.

Any good? Definitely. Despite his limited experience on gravel, Słobodzian won his class on the previous Polish championship round – Rally Elektrėnai in Lithuania, which he hopes will give him an edge on Poland’s ERC qualifier.

What’s the deal with his team? Subaru Poland Rally Team guided Dominykas Butvilas to third place in ERC2 in 2015 before Wojciech Chuchała went two places better in 2016 with the production championship crown. It then made a one-off ERC appearance with Marcin Słobodzian on Rally Rzeszow last season and is back on PZM Rally Poland with a single-car entry for Słobodzian and co-driver Grzegorz Dachowski, who is also known for his work – and success – alongside ERC Junior ace Aleks Zawada.
