Born in Leszno, he is the son of former rider Piotr Pawlicki Sr. and the younger brother of Przemysław Pawlicki.[1] He won the Polish Under-21 Championship in 2011 and also competed in the World Under-21 Championship.[1] He rode for his hometown team Unia Leszno in the Speedway Ekstraliga and also for Piła in the Polish second division. In August 2011 he was signed by Coventry Bees and rode for them in the Elite League.[1] He was a reserve at the 2011 Polish Speedway Grand Prix at Torun.[1] His 2011 season was ended by a broken wrist sustained while racing in Poland in October.[1]

In 2012, he rode for Poole Pirates as a temporary replacement for the injured Dennis Andersson, coming in on an assessed average of 4.00.[2] Poole wanted him to return in 2013 but decided against signing him after he was given a higher assessed average of 7.00 by the BSPA's independent arbitrator.[3][4] On 4 October 2014, he was crowned as the 2014 U21-Worldchampion in Pardubice, leading the Junior Worldchampionship after three events in Lonigo, Ostrow and Pardubice. For 2015 he has been nominated as one of the three Speedway-GP Reserves for the SGP 2015.

Pawlicki competed in the Speedway Grand Prix wearing the number 777 during 2016 and 2017 as a permanent rider. In 2016, he finished in 6th place after 18 heat wins, and made one Grand Prix final. In 2017, finished 11th with 81 points and won the 2017 Speedway Grand Prix of Latvia. The years of 2016 and 2017 were breakthrough years for Pawlicki and he recorded his best results to date after winning the Speedway World Cup with Poland in both 2016 and 2017. In the 2016 semi final, Pawlicki was the top scorer for Poland and for the final in Great Britain the current captain Maciej Janowski was dropped and Piotr, at only 21, was the new captain. He raced Poland to victory beating Great Britain for the title. In 2017 he was back on the Polish team alongside fellow grand prix riders: captain Maciej Janowski, Bartosz Zmarzlik, and Patryk Dudek. Where they won and were back to back champions beating team Sweden in Lezno, Poland.

In 2023, he signed for Piraterna in the Swedish Elitserien (he first rode for the club in 2011).[5] Pawlicki returned to British speedway in 2024, after signing for Birmingham Brummies.[6]
