NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 13 – Baldev Singh Chager is the new KNRC Champion following cancellation of this weekend’s KCB Guru Nanak Rally which was called off for the second time due to inclement weather.
Torrential rains and subsequent flash floods have since made it impossible for organisers Sikh Union Nairobi to run the event due to waterlogged black cotton roads in Stoni Athi region.
Following the Kenya Motor Sports Federation (KMSF) announcement that the 2019 KCB Bank Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC) will count as a seven (7) rounds championship instead of eight (8), Chager becomes the new Champion with an unassailable 162 points against Carl ‘Flash’ Tundo’s 142.
Chager was hoping to finish in the top 10 on Guru Nanak to recapture the coveted title but not until the force majeure was called. The KNRC title race went down to the wire after the muddy KCB Eldoret where Tundo swept the ground with all his opponents to keep his title defence alive.
Other Champions are Issa Amwari (Division Two), Ammar Haq (Division One), Daren Miranda (Two Wheel Drive) and Jasmeet Chana ,(Group N).
The 2020 calendar is already published with the first KNRC championship scheduled for 22nd – 23rd February 2020.
