Defending champion Baldev Chager will be hoping his Subaru Impreza N12 will be of great service to him throughout the 183km rally when he starts in third position.

The rally, which is the penultimate leg of the national championship will be pivotal in determining the destiny of the overall title.

Tundo at the moment is coasting towards rally’s holy grail with 360 points at the top followed by arch rival Lee Rose with 285.

Ian Duncan and Azar Anwar are fourth and fifth respectively while Chager is anchored on sixth position with 180 points.

The race will be staged in Il-Bissell and Kajiado and will also feature 13 entries in the 2WD category.

Rally clerk Dali Kalsi said that the rally is going to be bumpy due to the dry conditions and expects the drivers to struggle if the heavens open up.

“If it rains, then only a few finishers are expected due to the nature of the black cotton soil that becomes slippery and muddy in the process,” said Kalsi.

Charles Hinga will be leading the charge in the 2WD followed by James Kirimi and leader Jasmeet Chana.
