A driver that made a great comeback was non-other then Rajay Sehmi navigated by Dr. Raj Jutley in a Porsche 911. Rajay has been a regular competitor in the rally scene however as a navigator, and in his return to the rally this time as a driver he achieved an incredible 5th place overall!
The East African Safari Classic Mini Rally was somewhat of a family affair this year. We had the father-son duo of Arshad Khan and Farhaaz Khan – a household name in the motorsport fraternity. This amazing duo of the ALS team finished in fourth position.
A second father-son duo were Steve and Russel Parkinson, driving a Ford Escort MK 2.
And lastly, we had father-son duo of Malcolm and Lloyd Destro who drove a Datsun 280Z.
We can’t have special mentions without our wonderful ladies’ crew of Caroline Gatimu and Tuta Mionki. The talented ladies drove a Datsun 1600 SSS, which unfortunately did have technical problems during the event, but they fought it out and brought the car to the finish line.
