Premier Class driver Issa Amwari has averred that sweeping the roads during the seventh round of the KCB Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC) in Nanyuki this Saturday will place him in an advantage position to attack.
This is the virtue which he believes will trigger the much-needed adrenaline to make an impression.
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10 speedster is overly excited with the rotational seeding system which gives him a new experience of being placed in front of fellow Premier Class speedsters.
Amwari returns to his home rally behind the wheel of a soaped up Mitsubishi Evolution 10 and will be navigated by KCB Bank Group Customer Experience Director Job Njiru.
In the pecking order of frontrunners, Amwari will be followed by defending champion Baldev Singh Chager (VW Polo R5), Voi winner Karan Patel (Ford Fiesta R5) and the three Evolution 10s steered by five-time Safari winner Carl “Flash” Tundo, Eric Bengi and Jasmeet Chana.
“it’s never an advantage to start first and especially after missing out on Ramisi last month. But then again, being my first road sweeping experience in my home and having been on the reserve list in the Premier Class evokes a feeling of anticipation and a chance for an honorable placing rolled into one.”
‘’Recently, Jasmeet (Chana) swept the roads in Ramisi for the first time in his racing career. So, we are all excited about it as a team and are looking forward to bringing the Evo back in one piece,” said Amwari.
Meanwhile, preparations are in high gear ahead of the Nanyuki Rally Group (NRG) organized round.
