Carl Tundo to lead top drivers at RX Rallycross

Navigated by Tim Jessop, Carl ‘Flash’ Tundo will lead top drivers at the weekend’s 6th edition of RX Rallycross in Kasarani.

Rallycross is Kenya’s newest premier motorsport event, and a part of the Kenya Motorsport Federation (KMSF) Calendar.

The event is a combination of rallying and circuit racing. It features short, sharp, head-to-head races on mixed surfaces of both unpaved, loose surface roads, and tarmac.

Up to five cars at a time will race wheel-to-wheel on a circuit, similar to the Super Spectator Stage at the WRC Safari Rally, but with much closer racing. The event runs in heats in each race over a maximum of 5 laps with the aim of scoring the most points during the heats to qualify for the semifinal heats.

There are 6 Teams confirmed, consisting of top drivers from Kenya, Uganda and Zambia.

This will be the first of three rallycross events in 2024 and promises to be bigger and better than ever before. This year’s inaugural RX event has also been combined with the Amapiano Tour, which will expose the high-speed, high-adrenalin and excitement of RX to lovers of the bass-heavy music genre, whose origins can be traced to South Africa.

Said Carl ‘Flash’ Tundo, speaking on the upcoming event: “We are excited for some Rallycross action, featuring previous participants like the evergreen Ian Duncan, Baldev Chager, Azad Anwar, and myself. Youngsters Hamza Anwar and Joseph Gacheche will fight it out who is the fastest junior this season. In the ladies’ category, we expect Tash Tundo, Jeniffer Malik and other amazing female drivers to deliver a proper show.  At the end of each rally day, we shall take the excitement to the village for an unforgettable afterparty experience, curated in partnership with the Amapiano tour team.”
