MOTORSPORT | By Ben Ahenda | October 28th 2021
Safari Rally aces Carl ‘Flash’ Tundo and Ian Duncan are some of the top drivers who have confirmed participation in the KCB Gilgil Autocross Championships this morning.
The one-day competition will see the drivers and riders use their powerful machines at Oleleshwa Farm in the penultimate leg of the competition before the season closes in.
Other experienced drivers expected in this bruising competition are Erick Bengi, Maxine Wahome, Frank Tundo and Sam Karangatha.
They’ll race in a course of 2,2km from the point of start to the flying finish as it is twisty and running clockwise but very slippery during rainy seasons.
The event’s Relationship Officer Ian Mwangi said so far 32 riders had confirmed participation by the close of business on Thursday evening, which was the deadline for entry registration.
He assured all participants and the general public of adequate security at the event.
“We’ll provide adequate security for all participants and spectators and there should be no cause for alarm for all players when at the venue of the competition,” Mwangi told Standard Sports.
He said they have also put in place medical facilities for the riders just in case of any emergency both for the riders and spectators.
However, he stated that they have only limited places for spectators.
