Career summary

A son of multiple Polish Rallycross Champion Jacek Ptaszek, motorsport is in the genes for Hubert. He began his career on the karting circuit, but switched to rallying as soon as he was old enough to get his driving licence.

He made his competitive debut in 2011 and campaigned a Ford Fiesta R2 in Polish events for three years before his first appearance in the WRC at the 2013 Wales Rally GB.

A seven-round WRC programme followed in 2014. He twice won his class in the R2 Fiesta and also made his four-wheel-drive debut in a Super 2000 spec car.

He tackled another mixed WRC programme in 2015, ending with his first event in an R5 spec Skoda Fabia.

He remained in the Skoda for much of 2016 when he tackled his first full season in WRC 2. And with the objective of building experience, he also mixed in events at the wheel of a Peugeot 208 T16 and a Ford Fiesta. Best results were the second places he secured in Mexico and Argentina.

With one season under his belt, in 2017 he returns for a second WRC 2 campaign.
