Safari Rally.2011

Ola amigos!

Hope the week’s started well for you (depending on your time zone – I understand it’s past midday in Aussie)

The week’s started off in chilly fashion, which is a stark contrast to what the weekend was.

The highlight of the weekend for any normal Kenyan must have been/should have been the just concluded KCB Safari Rally. What made this edition more special is that it involved more competitors from far and wide, as the event tries to regain its lost lustre and reclaim it’s stake in the International front of Rallying. The 3 day gruelling event was flagged off on Friday by the President Hon. Mwai Kibaki at KICC grounds, which later moved to the Jamhuri show grounds for a spectacular, spectator show piece.

The weather was almost perfect, though the photographer in me wished it had rained a wee bit to add more drama to the surface. Nonetheless, we were treated to an amazing show of mind boggling driving and stunts, as so happens when man and machine augment. More information on the winners, losers, times posted, etcetera can be found here

Enough with the yap, here’s a sampler of the action. Enjoy.

    • Asante sana. Nothing tops the safari rally my friend. Hopefully they’ll return it to the international circuit,this Kenyan circuit. Drag racing nothing.
