After Rally Ypres is Kajetanowicz in the second place losing 21 points to championship leader Craig Breen who will be one of his main rivals in Estonia. It has been a good battle this year between Breen and Kajto, like the fans call him. Kajto was the winner in Jännerrallye, first round of 2015 FIA ERC.

The learning process has to be extremely quick in Estonia because you tackle a huge part of the route, many blind corners and crests in top gear, pedal to the metal. I will do my best to extract every single horsepower from our Fiesta R5. auto24 Rally Estonia is a challenge which we relish: interesting, unpredictable and a bit crazy – which makes it really fascinating. This round of FIA European Rally Championship will be the most difficult one for us when it comes to scoring and this is why the points secured in Estonia will be extremely valuable for me.”
