The rally season is in full swing and picks up steam. In May, two rounds of the Polish Hill-Climb Championship begin a series of competitions in the mountain scenery. Bartek Bąk, a young yet already award-winning driver racing in the colours of WESEM, is going to participate.

Bartek has started his automotive adventure with cross motorbikes. 'I experienced my first sports car emotions in 2010 when I sat behind the wheel of a Lancer Evo X,' says Bartek. In 2013, he made his debut in the Polish Hill-Climb Championship in which he won the title of the Polish Vice-Champion right away. 'Then I exchanged a Renault Clio for a Honda Civic Type R and I took the second place in the championship, as well.'

Last year, Bartek was unrivalled. His very fast and even ride resulted in the title of the Polish Champion already in the fourth elimination round (out of seven); it also brought him the victory in all race uphill drives in the season.

This year, Bartek Bąk races in the colours of the WESEM Racing Team. He has already had his first successful race – he took the third place in Class 2 during the Wieliczka Memorial. 'We keep our fingers crossed for Bartek, hoping that he will provide amazing experience to fans of mountain races,' says Tomasz Hajduk, co-owner of the WESEM company, which sponsors the team.

WESEM has a long history of cooperation with enthusiast drivers, for example with Janek Chmielewski in car rallies, Krzysztof Hajduk in drift or Jarek Monachowicz in cross-country rallies. Each crew uses WESEM professional lighting, and the company supports them when they participate in competitions. 'We observe their development with satisfaction and we celebrate their successes together. We are convinced that Bartek Bąk will also be a success,' says Tomasz Hajduk.
