Students enter Concour

NAIROBI, Kenya, September 9- Four students from Rosslyn Academy have entered a 1950 Fiat 500 C for the 2010 Access Kenya Africa Concours d’Elegance. Daniele Sardelli, Michael Barton, Reed Burr and Chris Harrell have entered the car which is owned by Daniele’s father Marco who won the class for up to 1000cc touring cars six times.

“Our family is keenly interested in motor sport and my mother Suzie used to navigate for Patrick Njiru. My parents are giving advice but my friends and I are doing all the hard work,” said Daniele.

“In addition to putting the finishing touches to the car, we are preparing our costumes. Linking with the mouse nick name for the Fiat 500 we have decided on a Rat Pack theme,” he added.

The Fiat 500 was a very successful model and earned the nick name “Topolino” and is a motoring icon. The Rosslyn Academy team will be up against the Vitafoam entered 1972 Austin Mini in the category for small touring cars and Feisal Mohamed’s 1976 Citroen 2CV.

“We are delighted and impressed with the enthusiasm of Daniele and his friends. They have recognised that they have the opportunity for winning  prizes for the assessment of their car by the Concours judges and the completely separate judging of  costumes by theatre personality Ian Mbugua,” said competition secretary Lucy Mungai.
