WRC returns to Africa interestingly the competition happed last in the continent in 2002.Challenging dirt roads, staggering picture-postcard scenery and the marvelous wildlife. Find out all you need to know in the Safari Rally Kenya event set to happen on (24 – 27 June)
The first of three returning works of art, the Safari has been absent from the WRC schedule since 2002. What we have this year, as far as competitive on matters distance , is a Safari in the shadow of its former self.
But the days of spinning in open streets, through towns with just an overflying helicopter to protect you are no more. They basically can’t return. What we have in their place is a course run on a private estate/village roads adjusting substantially to the rules and principles overseeing different rounds of the event.
But WRC is however interesting to watch, don’t stress, this will be an all-African round of the world thing. The streets will be pukka, Safari harsh in places and the wildlife, the elephants and giraffes, are largely unique as well,KARIBU AFRICA if you may.
Given the ban on testing on long-haul rallies, it will be entrancing to see who can make a World Rally Car customized to the demand of Europe’s fast gravel, work in the African dirt,the rain, the dust and most interesting racing under the African sun with the wildlife watching. Its all going down in Naivasha KENYA.
