Reigning champion Carl Tundo was in an imperious form when he stormed to victory in the KCB Nyeri Rally at the weekend, the second leg of the Kenya National Rally Championship series.
Tundo’s first win of the season was, however, dented by two major mishaps, one involving the Mitsubishi Lancer of speedster Ian Duncan and an ambulance of the medical crew.
The former national champion and his navigator, Amar Slatch, survived a near-fatal accident after their Mitsubishi Lancer rally car crashed heavily into a Toyota Land-cruiser belonging to the medical team of the rally.
Duncan said he was disappointed that stages were not properly manned, allowing such a vehicle to move into the section while rally cars were already racing.
“We thank God we are all Okay. It could have been worse. If it were not for the safety apparatus inside our rally cars, it could have been fatal,” said Duncan.
Azar Anwar, who finished fourth, was blocked by an ambulance in the Nanyuki Rally last year.
