Five leading Kenya National Rally Championship contenders have entered the 2021 African Rally Championship (ARC) Rwanda Rally scheduled for the weekend.
They are Carl "Flash" Tundo and his navigator Tim Jessop in a VW Polo, Karan Patel and Tauseef Khan in a Ford Fiesta, Hamza Anwar and Denis Mwenda in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo10, McRae Kimathi and Mwangi Kioni in a Ford Fiesta and the only female crew of Maxime Wahome and Linet Ayuko in a Subaru Impreza.
Tundo is looking to win the ARC title for the first time. The prolific driver has five Safari Rally titles, he has won the East African Safari Classic Rally once and the Kenya National Rally Championship title five times.
Tundo tops the ARC standings with 90 points after having won the Equator Rally (Kenya), Tanzania and Zambia ARC rounds. The title chase is wide open with 60 points at stake in the remaining two legs. Tundo leads South Africa's Guy Botteril by 17 points.
