Seven cars were today scrutinized ahead of the Equator Rally cars classified in the national category, the first round of the Africa Rally Championship.
Chief FIA Technical Delegate Musa Locho, the man mandated to inspect each and every rally car was present to ensure that the championships will be successful.
Out of the total number of 34 entries, seven are R5 cars that have been enlisted for the 2021 FIA ARC Equator Rally.
The ARC is open to R5-specification four-wheel drive cars from the Rally2 class of technical regulations. They are less modified than World Rally Cars and power and performance are balanced through turbocharger air restrictors, minimum weight stipulations and price caps.
The Equator Rally will tackle six competitive stages from the 2021 WRC Safari Rally set up which has been planned for the Kenya’s return to the World Rally Championship in June.
The drivers will tackle Elmentaita, Sosyambu and Sleeping Warrior on Day Two while Day Three will pass through Malewa, Loldia and Kedong once.
