NAIROBI, Kenya, October 2- Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) National Rally Championship leader Carl Tundo could clinch the title if he wins Guru Nanak rally on Sunday.
Tundo who tops the standings with 360 points needs to win Kenya’s oldest rally if he’s to secure the holy grail for the second time in three years.
When the rally veteran won the championship in 2007, it was in the same event so he will be forgiven for thinking that the Guru Nanak is a good omen for him.
His main challenge could come from his perennial rival Lee Rose is second on the table with 285 points despite starting his campaign late due to lack of a sponsor.
Rose’s current position caps a phenomenal rise up the table enhancing his status as the fastest driver on Kenyan soil.
In the 2WD category, leader Jasmeet Chana needs a podium finish to clinch the title that is currently being held by Leonardo Varese.
Chana leads the 2WD standings with 103 points while Varese is second with 76.
Charles Hinga who has been the pacesetter for most of the championship has slipped to fourth virtually ending his chances of securing the title.
The rally will be flagged outside the KCB Kajiado branch and finish at the Simba Union Club on Forest Road.
The rally will take place through five stages including repetitions on stage two (Il-Bissel-Kamakuru 39km) and stage three (Kamakuru-Mailitisa 29km).
The rally will take place around the Il-Bissel and Kajiado areas and will also employ the GPRS tracking system to deter cheating.
