2017 – Alpine Cup A110

– Racing and rallying are two different worlds, but equally demanding – they require high concentration and precision. Track driving is quite different from rallying. I am aware that the players I will compete against have a lot of experience on the first pitch, but I will not give up and I will do my best. It will definitely be a great experience! The Alpine is a perfectly balanced car and even made to fight on the track, so I expect a lot of fun and fierce competition. I know the formula of the cup competition well, I myself am the founder of the land cup, which is very popular in Poland – says Krzysztof Hołowczyc.
This time the Polish driver will compete on the legendary track – Circuit Zandvoort, designed by John Hugenholz.

The track was built in the 1940s and the first race was held here in 1949. The original version was about 3 kilometers long. Three years later, the track was added to the Formula 1 calendar as the Dutch Grand Prix.
The development of motorsport is one of Krzysztof Hołowczyc’s goals, it is his passion and lifestyle, and overcoming new obstacles and crossing boundaries is something he is used to by his fans. Surely the track at Zandvoord will turn out to be lucky for Hołek!

I always add gas – interview with Krzysztof Hołowczyc

It seems that life begins after the age of 60 … What does it mean for Krzysztof Hołowczyc, who has achieved almost everything in the field of motorsport?

Instead, I would say that this life just goes on, and in my case with complete relaxation. The number jumped forward does not change the desire to gas up at all. If there are dreams, you have to put in a lot of hard work and just make them come true. Of course, you can consider that you are tired and spend your whole life in bed with a glass of wine in your hand … Only, as far as I know, this is not real life …

What motivates you most to take on new challenges today?

It is basically a need to prove to one person that I can do more. That guy is me. I have won many meetings in my life, thanks to my hard work I joined the world leaders in off-road meetings, I also overcame a serious illness. It taught me a lot. I know that every moment is important in life and that each one must be celebrated with great appreciation for its value. That’s why I try to stay in perfect physical and mental shape and continue to do what I love. So I couldn’t spend my birthday otherwise than fighting in the Polish Championship… It makes me feel alive. This is what drives me.

Why did you accept the invitation of Alpine Katowice to participate in a profession that is not your main domain?

Because it is a new experience for me, and therefore a challenge that, as I mentioned, gives me strength. I am clearly more of a “sand” and “Dakar” driver, but just the fact of competition makes me feel alive. And this makes me feel that I am a happy person. I love life and I plan to get it right.
