With preparations for 2021 World Rally championships (WRC) set to be held in Kenya, International Motorsport Federation (FIA) President Jean Todt held consultative meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta on the programme and road safety.
Todt announced his support for Kenya’s road safety and climate change adaptation programmes ahead of the WRC returning to Kemya after two decades.
Todt will inspect the rally Service Park at the Kenya Wildlife Training Institute.
Massive work has been put into the Service Park, which will be the rally’s nerve centre during the June 24 to 27 competition.
President Kenyatta welcomed the offer by the FIA saying a road safety campaign will be rolled out ahead of next year’s Safari Rally.
He regretted the postponement of the rally to next year due to Covid-19 saying Kenya will be better prepared to host the iconic global motorsport event from next year.
