Fresh from victory in the KCB Bankika Rally the previous weekend in Athi River, Ian Duncan won the Rob’s Magic Quattro Charge for a record third time at Lukenya Hills.
Duncan, who won the inaugural event in 2001, retained the title he won last year at the same venue before a partisan crowd of 4,000 spectators.
Duncan in a carroty KTM Cruiser had the least errors (30) and was elated to lay hands on the Quattro Charge trophy. Second was Sean Avery who lost 160 points followed by the Range Rover crew of Jasraj Bhairaj on 515.

A total of 40 drivers took part in the event whose aim was to help the competitors raise funds to contest the forthcoming and world’s famous Rhino Charge which in June.
The efforts of the organisers, sponsors and competitors did not disappoint as over Sh1.6 million was raised towards their Rhino Charge funds.
The Rhino Charge is one of the most popular events on the Kenyan social calendar that attracts crews from across the globe. during the event, crews travel across rough terrain in as short a distance as possible, negotiating rivers and mountains along the way.
Each crew must raise in excess of Sh500,000 entry fee, with all proceeds from the day going to the Rhino Ark foundation.
Since its inception in 1989, the Rhino charge has raised more than Sh80 million to help fence the Aberdares National Park.
Duncan and his crew, consisting of Steve Plumb, Franco Checchini, Dez Page Morris and Anthony Kinyanjui, have now won the Quattro Charge three times. The number two car will once again be raising funds for this worthwhile cause.
