A brief history of the company and a description of our activity
Stec Rally Art is a professional rally stable that deals with building, preparing and maintenance of the Mitsubishi Lancer, Ford Fiesta Proto, and Group R5 rally cars.
Stec Rally Art prepares cars for racing events all around the world, including the World Rally Championship, the European and Polish Rally Championships. The founder and chairman of Stec Ralliart is Zbigniew Stec, a famous businessman and rally driver with years-long experience in preparing Mitsubishi cars for rallying.
IN DECEMBER 2001 IN WARSAW, DURING THE OFFICIAL PREMIERE OF THE MITSUBISHI LANCER EVO VII, STEC RALLIART RECEIVED AN OFFICIAL CERTIFICATE FROM THE MANAGEMENT OF MITSUBISHI MOTORS CO., GIVING THEM AN EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO REPRESENT THE RALLIART COMPANY – THE WORLD SPORTS DIVISION OF MITSUBISHI – IN POLAND. CURRENTLY, THE RALLIART BRANCH IN OUR COUNTRY IS CALLED STEC RALLIART.
Mitsubishi Stec Raliart is the first professional “rally stable” in Poland, dealing with professional preparation of cars for rallying. Zbigniew Stec was one of the first rally drivers who competed in a Mitsubishi car and made a significant contribution towards the popularisation of the Japanese maker’s cars in motorsports in our country. Initially, the company offered the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo III cars prepared for the Group N, gradually broadening its offer up to the newest generation Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X. Zbigniew Stec’s direct contact with Western companies such as Ralliart Germany and Co Sport from the United Kingdom gave the rally teams cooperating with Mitsubishi Stec Ralliart a guarantee that they would be able to use the newest technology in professional preparation and servicing of rally cars. No other motorsport company in Poland offered such a guarantee.
In the years 1999 – 2001, Mitsubishi Stec Ralliart Polska started cooperation with rally drivers sponsored by companies that were leaders in their markets – Tomasz Czopik representing the Excellent Rally Team – a producer of luxury bathrooms, and Marcin Turski from the Mocne Rally team, representing one of the largest tobacco concerns in the world – the Reemtsma company.
In the 2001 season, Zbigniew Stec continued cooperation with the Excellent Rally Team and Mocne Rally. More drivers and rally teams ordered the services of Mitsubishi Stec Ralliart: Michał Bębenek (TC Dębica-Castrol Rally Team), Magdalena Cieślik (Karotka Rally Team) and Mariusz Stec (AS Rally Team). In addition, Zbigniew Stec performed maintenance for drivers from Ukraine, Hungary and Bulgaria. Every round of RSMP Polish Rally Championship consists of about 300 kilometres of special stages. In the case of 8 rounds, the total distance is over 2400 kilometres. Over a period of two years, cars prepared by Mitsubishi Stec Ralliart covered this distance without any serious technical malfunction.
