Having already taken an impressive scalp in Baringo, four-times Safari Rally winner Carl “Flash” Tundo was at it again at penultimate stage to consolidated his lead in the JCB Ganatra National Rally Raid Championship.
Tundo emerged the overall winner during the fourth round held in the serene but picturesque Lukenya and Konza terrain to stay on course for a maiden off road title.
“It’s such a great feeling that we have again managed to win overall title at the raid. Flash has been driving really well for the three outings we have been with this car,” said Tim Jessop who is also Flash’s regular navigator in the Kenya National Rally championship.
Driving a Milner R4, which is powered by a BMW engine, Tundo cleared the ground with all his opponents in a time of 2:23.42. Tundo, who skipped the season opening race in Soysambu, now leads the car class with 220 ahead of Gray Cullen on 215.
Ross Field, riding a Husqvarna 350, romped home second overall and first in the bikes class incidentally 2.04 minutes behind Flash. Field, who is also the defending champion, maintained his dogged campaign in search of back-to-back championship success by restricting Robbie Calder to second overall in bikes class.
