Maciej was born with a passion for motorsports. He has been racing all kinds of 4–wheeled vehicles since his early childhood days. At the age of three he got his first proper racecar – a miniature Mercedes SLK roadster equipped with a gasoline engine, a gearbox, clutch and brakes. Then came donuts and drifting at the wheel of Peugeot’s, Volkswagen’s and Fiat’s at the parking lot of his father’s company in Tarnów, Maciej’s hometown. This is how it started.
In 2012, at the age of 16, Maciej made a first serious step to race world when received his race licence and sprang into motorsports with highly competitive Kia Lotos Race series in Poland. After completing his first racing season and securing 12th position overall, Maciej moved to an even more challenging series – European Volkswagen Castrol Cup – to face Europe’s top young motorsports talents. Being only 17, he was the youngest driver on the grid. The season has been plauged with technical problems, though, but Maciej managed to finish 12th overall.
