Baldev Chager, winner of the first mini rally in 2018, is the winner of the EASCR mini classic rally.
He led a strong field in the World’s Greatest Classic Rally at the end of a first day that saw the competitors start in Nairobi and finished in the shadows of Mount
His Porsche 911 led Geoff Bell’s Datsun 240Z and legend Ian Duncan’s Rover V8.
Reflecting on the first day, Baldev was delighted to be back, saying, “As long as you are in the Classic, it’s a
good day. If you’re happy, smiling and driving a Classic Car, there’s nothing better.”
The East African Safari mini Classic Rally drivers passed through challenging dirt roads with stunning picture-postcard scenery and exotic wildlife.
Another unique attribute of this rally is the roadside servicing and teams were swarmed upon by enthusiastic crowds of fans as the Service Crews went to work in front of them.
Reinforcing what a distinctive event this is, “It is very different from the KNRC, it is you driving but most of it is drive by sight, a learning experience forme.” said Maxine Wahome, driver of the only ladies team, co-driven by Safina Khan.
