KNRC 2: KCB Biashara Banking Rally
The second round of the Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC); KCB Biashara Banking Rally organized by Rift Valley Motor Sports Club’s (RVM&SC) was held in the picturesque Lake Bogoria region of the Great Rift Valley where Carl Tundo took his second first place finish of the season with a 10 second Margin.
Carl Tundo’s Dalbit Petroleum teammate Alastair Cavenagh took the second podium place and the three times Kenya Champion Azar Anwar settled for third position
“Iam very very happy with the 1-2 Dalbit team finish… It was a fierce battle and quite exciting that we were swapping the leadership with Alastair considering that he was first on the road,” said Tundo. Cavenagh was all smiles. “This was really close. We pushed the car knowing that we had to be very careful and from the mood in first stage we knew it was going to be very fast, so we were level headed,” said Alastair.
Onkar Rai came fourth followed by Raaji Bharij who caused quite a stir when he went through the spectator stage to finish the rally on three wheels. ”We broke a shock 20kilometers from the end of CS5 and drove all the way in transport with my navigator, Geoff Mayes on the bonnet” said Raaji.
The defending champion Ian Duncan kissed the event goodbye on CS3 with a burst radiator. Other casualties included Fahd Bary of Nakuru who also blew a radiator, Issa Amwari rolled on the opening stage and Sammy Nyori (Toyota Vitz) retired in the latter stages of CS1 when the left wheel and hub came off.
