Carl “Flash” Tundo came second in his Mitsubishi EvolutionX followed by Jasmeet Chana in a similar machine.

Aakif Virani in a Skoda Fabia R5 emerged the Division One winner in 4th overall position.

The all ladies crew of Maxine Wahome and Linet Ayuko emerged the Division Two winners in a career best seventh spot.

The win was a good consolation for Chager who retired in Machakos last month with a front LH damper failure about 40kms into CS1. He was unable to limp out and get to the Lisa Farm service so had to call it a day for Machakos.

The Mombasa Motor Club (MMC) round was a high attrition rally with half of the field failing to survive the demanding sea level conditions.

The rally traversed some ‘fast and furious’ sugar plantation stages around Kwale County where crews endured some hot and dusty conditions typical of the coast weather.

The event was reduced to a two-horse race when Voi winner Karan Patel dropped out in the first loop of the MMC itinerary.

With Karan gone, Chager and Tundo fought all day with the former carrying the day in scintillating fashion.

The casualties in Ramisi were Eric Bengi, Karan, Jeremy Wahome, 

Hamzar Anwar, Piero Canobbio,

Nikhil Sachania, Paras Pandya, Waita, Nzioka, Paras Pandya,

Kailesh Chouhan and Edwatd Maina.
