Rally fans face tough, new rules in KCB Nakuru competition

By Feverpitch Reporter

Nakuru, Kenya: Organisers of KCB Mobi Bank Nakuru Rally have introduced tough new rules that spectators will have to adhere to in the event to run around Alfega, Mogotio and Gicheha Farm on June 8.

Clerk of the course, Lynn Tundo, said there will be zero tolerance to spectator misdemeanour and announced that spectators will only be confined to the designated spectator stage at Kipsyenan Primary School in Kampi Ya Moto.

“As part of our elaborate safety plan, we are going to run the event largely on private farms where spectators will not be allowed. We would like to avoid past scenarios where spectators have misbehaved by running up and down the stages,” said Lynn, who is Carl Tundo’s mother and a long-standing KNRC official.

The rally will be flagged off outside the KCB Menengai Industrial Area branch at 7am on June 8. Scrutineering and documentation will be at the Lesiolo Grain Handlers silos in Lanet on June 7.

“The 25km Gicheha stage is a new twisty section that we haven’t used before. The 41km Horne section in Mogotio is also exciting to the crews. The first car will finish at Kampi Ya Moto along Baringo Road at 2.10pm, but we shall be strict with spectators,” said Lynn. 

Series leader Baldev Chager of Kabras Sugar Team will again be among the favourites driving Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.

The ‘Flying Singh’ has maintained consistency in the series which makes him one of the hottest contenders for the top position.

Besides Chager, others to watch in the Division 1 are reigning champion Carl “Flash”Tundo”, Ian Duncan and Azar Anwar.

Azar and Tundo, in Mitsubishi Evo 9 and 8 respectively have vowed to drive all the way to the podium

Chager clinched the first round of the series in Kajiado in January with Tundo emerging the winner of the second round in Nyeri and Ian Duncan winning Voi Rally last month.
