Autocross action resumes at Jamhuri
It’s all systems go as the fifth round of the Kenya National Autocross Championship’s high-octane action resumes on Saturday at Jamhuri Park for the first time since March.
The action features buggies, rally cars and quad bikes, creating a perfect Sunday outing full of thrilling high-speed racing.
Series leader Ben Muchemi, in a Mitsubishi Evo 6, is set to ruffle feathers as he seeks to maintain his position, having missing the past two rounds – in Migaa Farm in April and Nguu Tatu (Mombasa) last month.
Among those expected to keep Muchemi on his toes are defending champion Keith Henry, Kyle Lucas and Samir Khan, who is placed second in the championship.
There will also be renewed rivalry between Charles Mugo and fast-rising Eugene Maina as they fight for top honors in the Under-24 category.
Also expected in the event are Bobby Sehmi and Hardeep Rehsi, who have been sharing a buggy this season, and Shaz Esmail.
Sibling rivalry will also be rife as Rajbir Rai takes on younger brother Amaan Raj Rai in a shared buggy.
Nzioka Waita, of the Safaricom team, will be back for more action in his Subaru N10 even after a light roll in the recent Safari Rally.
Proceedings start at 9am with an official practice lap followed by four intense heats throughout the day, although only times from the best three heats will count for the final timings.
The event is organised by the Kenya Motor Sports Club (KMSC).
