Meanwhile will a mini version of the event finally take place in Kenya between the 09th and 11th of December, starting in Nairobi at the Sarova Panafric Hotel and venturing into the Rift Valley before ending at the Sarova Woodlands Hotel in Nakuru. Entries for this event have already opened on the 17th of September and will run until the 23rd of November. The original dates in August had to be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
The event has been organized to pay tribute to the late J.S. ‘Pinky‘ Vohra, a former chairman of the event and staunch supporter, who passed in a motor accident while heading to one of the rally stops in November last year.
