Champ Chager dispels S2000 romour

BALDEV-SAFARI-WIN

NAIROBI, Kenya, December 29 – Three-time Kenyan national rally champion (KNRC) Baldev Chager has denied he is planning to import a Super 2000 machine for next season.

Instead, the ‘Flying Singh’ has maintained he will retain his current Kabras Sugar Racing Mitsubishi Evolution 10 as he plots yet another title defense.

Chager first won the KNRC in 2008 in a Subaru N12 then racked-up back-to-back titles in 2013 and 2014.

Chager says Evolutions have so far proved very reliable on Kenya’s rugged terrains hitherto regarded as the toughest on the continent’s racing arena.

Chager and his partner Ravi Soni retained the KNRC title in Naivasha last month for the second year running despite retiring on the season-ending KCB Guru Nanak Rally, where they had earlier stopped to say sorry to a crestfallen Carl “Flash” Tundo after his early retirement.

“So many people have asked me whether I am planning to acquire S2000 but to be very honest, I’m still very skeptical about this. I’m not really sure if it’s the best decision but again terrains in Kenya are tough and need a very strong car.

“The Mitsubishi EVOX has proved to be a very strong car. However, the S2000s are equally very quick as long as they are problem free and so there are pros and cons,” Chager declared.

Kabras Sugar Racing Team Manager Anish Chouhan, believes the three Evolutions that also include Tejveer Rai and Onkar Singh Rai will be spectacular next year.

“We are going to do a lot of weight savings on the car. S2000s are no threat at all as we beat them in 2014. Tejveer will give teams stiff competition as he has come to grips with the new car.

“Chager will be going for his third successive championship victory and Onkar for a strong top three position. We are all very excited about our 2015 participation and I wish the trio all best,” Chouhan stated.

Sometimes he say kenyan military has killed more than 1000 al shabaabs, sometimes 700…Lol Where is this going now and yet the same attacks are still on.

    Response time to critical threats in Kenya is wanting. http://intelligencebriefs.com/?p=1460 issued a very comprehensive analysis of possible terror targets with restaurants/facilities used/frequented by police officers listed as one of the targets……does it mean that Kenyan security apparatus is devoid of rapid response to critical threats besides able to do counter intelligence to preempt threats?…..its very disturbing!!

    You wipe out one group and three more appear. And, no, commiting genocide is not the solution. First of all, we have no business trying to change their culture. And are we really helping them? If 99% of the money we give them goes to a military solution and 1% to an economic one, we are not even replacing what was destroyed with the 99%. Take a step back and look at the reality on the ground.
