Rajiv Ruparelia and his co-driver Enock Olinga will be driving in Kenya this Sunday at the KCB Machakos Rally 2021; the two last month took part in the KCB Nakuru rally, also in Kenya.
Rajiv and Olinga under the Rajiv Ruparelia Rally Team were making their continental debut. In their VW polo proto, Rajiv Ruparelia, the only Ugandan driver who managed to register for the event, expects a lot from this rally.
The KCB Machakos Rally has attracted 21 entries. The official programme will kick off with the reconnaissance of the route on Saturday while the scrutineering of the rally cars will be performed on the same day at the KMSC clubhouse in Nairobi’s South C.
Lisa Park, the rally’s headquarters, will host the start, finish and the main Service Park of the KCB Bank-sponsored rally. Lisa Park (56 kilometres) and Kajiado (15.28 kilometres) will be the two main stages that will be repeated during the course of the competition.
The total distance will be 154 kilometres of which 143 will be competitive.
After Machakos, the next event will be the Equator Rally, the opening round of the 2021 African Rally Championship, to be staged from April 23 to 25 in Naivasha.
