Preparations for the World rally championships in the country are on top notch after Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed inspected the venue.
Amina inspected the nerve centre at the Kenya Wildlife Training Institute today ahead of the June 24-27 WRC Safari Rally championships.
CS Amina said she was fully satisfied with efforts being actualised well ahead of schedule and prayed that the same can be replicated in daily road activities in Kenya.
“His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta and FIA President Jean Todt agreed to establish an Action for Road Safety Programme to embed the values of safe motoring during Jean Todt’s visit to Kenya in November, 2020,” said the CS.
The WRC Safari Rally’s Chief Safety Officer Norris Ongalo put the assembled team through the intricacies of safety for both competitors and fans and displayed hydraulic cutting machines which can save a life at the shortest possible time.
The rally cars will be returning to the service park three times a day during the June 24-27 competition, therefore offering rallying enthusiasts a chance to see the competitors.
While the rally will start in Nairobi, the competitive sections will be around Naivasha, along with a power stage at the Hell’s Gate National Park where the finish and prize-giving ceremony is also planned, just outside the park.
