Photographer's Note

Driver on the photo is Janusz Kulig. He's 3 times Polish Rally Champion, Slovakian Rally Champion, European Rally V-ce Chamion.

He was born in Poland, near to Crakov, and becouse he loved what he was doing from no-one he became a star (altough he never acted like one). He was loved by thousands of rally nuts, not only in his country. Thats why some use to say he was lucky. In 2001 he had a big shunt at 170 km/h fighting for victory in Rally of Poland. He was unhurt...

On 13 of february 2004 he was driving home from his everydays work. He died hit by train on railway crossing becouse gates were not closed. He left his few years old dother, pregnant wife, his fans, friends and rivals...

Yestarday was exactly a year since he left us..altough some say he will always be alive...
