Ahead of the Kenya National Rally calendar that kicks off this weekend, rally drivers are urging spectators to make this year’s calendar incident free starting with Kajiado.

Former national champion Azar Anwar, his Navigator Pastor Julius Ngigi and their team mate Quentin Mitchell, have ganged up in one voice calling for safe spectating amongst rally enthusiasts.

“There have been recorded fatal accidents resulting in several deaths along the Kajiado-Namanga road in past rallies. Spectators are now giving the sport a bad name. Our appeal is to make this edition safe and different.” Said Anwar.

He was echoed by Pastor Ngigi who said. “There will be several other rallies after the Kajiado one. There is no need to over indulge and be careless on the road. It is good to enjoy as a fan but have responsible fun.” He said.

Mitchell has called on law enforcers to help curb the emerging careless driving from the fans.

So far 55 drivers have enlisted for the Sunday KCB event. The famous Andy’s Corner stretch in Kajiado has been designated as the spectator point for KCB Kajiado Rally.

The rally starts from the Clubhouse at 8am and the ceremonial finish will start at 5pm at the Kajiado Service Park. The prize giving will be at the finish venue at Kajiado Service Park.
