Phineas has been championing Kenya’s dream to get back to World Rally status, emphasising on the need to realise this dream and what impact it brings to the Kenyan economy.

“Our aim is to not only make our nation and our people proud and deliver on our President’s promise but benefit from economic windfall the WRC status brings to our economy,” said Kimathi in February.

The Kenyan government in January promised to fully support the 019 FIA World Rally Championships.

“Let us acknowledge and salute the government and KMSF efforts in taking the sport a notch higher. This is because as you are aware, the Safari’s WRC campaign is a Jubilee government’s project and its patron is his Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta,” said ex-Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa.
