Veteran Ian Duncan on Sunday won the third round of the 2015 Kenya National Rally Championship held in Kajiado.

Despite competitive challenge, Ian Duncan driving his Mitsubishi Evo10 and navigated by Kavit Dave stayed focused to finish as best ahead of close challenger Rajbir Rai and Tim Challen who finished in second place.

2015 Safari Rally winner Jaspreet Chatthe driving his Mitsubishi Lancer EVE10, finished third.

The Kajiado rally was initially full of controversy after Sponsors (KCB) social media handlers announced that the rally had been cancelled even before checking with the route clerks and organizes of the event.

Drivers and organizers however ignored the confusion and turned up for the event that ended successfully with only six drivers out of the 34 who started retiring for various reasons.
