As the WRC didn’t exist at the time. Poland first appeared on the WRC calendar in 1973 as a one-off event. It would remain absent until 2009 when Mikko Hirvonen won the event. Then Poland was absent again until 2014 when it made 4 consecutive WRC appearances. Sebastien Ogier won in both 2014 and 2015, while Andreas Mikkelsen won in 2016 and Thierry Neuville in 2017.
