Three Kenyan rally drivers will be dancing in the dust and mud as they carry the country’s flag at the Tanzanian Guru Nanak rally championships.
Kenya’s Safari Rally legends Carl "Flash" Tundo and Ian Duncan will be in action at the event scheduled for November 7-8 in Manduli, Arusha. The rally has also attracted another Kenyan raising star Karan Patel.
Karan is currently one of the fastest drivers on the Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC) front having already captivated local fans on the KCB Nyahururu Rally in March this year before Covid-19 pandemic halted rallying activities.
Duncan will be navigated by Tej Sehmi while Karan is reuniting with Tausef Khan.
Riyaz Ismail, who is currently lying 2nd on the Tanzanian rally log, will be rallying for Gurjit Dhani of Hari Singh Team in a Skoda Proto.
