Carl “Flash” Tundo navigated by Tim Jessop in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X will be the first one off the ramp as the sixth leg of the 2018 Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC) zooms off in Kilifi County on Saturday.
Tundo will be going for his fourth successive win of the season at sea level.
He leads the KNRC log on 100 points against ‘Flying Singh’ Baldev Chager who despite retiring on the belated third round at Lisa Farm retained the second spot on 71 points.
Chager who retired on the KMSC leg last month with a 1.30minutes lead has been seeded third ahead of Subaru’s Eric Bengi, Tejveer Rai, Jasmeet Ghana and Farhaaz Khan.
Bengi currently tops Group N infont of Farhaaz. Home driver Izhar Mirza aka Izzy is seeded eighth ahead of veteran Frank Tundo and other two home boys- Ammar Haq and Piero Canobbio.
The rally will have 8 stages.
The Momabsa Cement Stage will be run thrice, the Ocean and Mwapula stages will be run twice, and the Magingoni Stage will be run once.
