Zambia’s Muna Singh Jr has pulled out of this year’s African Rally Championship (ARC).
Muna Jr will be the second ARC contender to quit this year after Ivory Coast’s Gary Chaynes.
Muna earlier told Kawowo sports how Rally of Tanzania would determine his continuation if he got maximum points.
However, he was unfortunate and dropped out due to mechanical issues.
Muna Jr will now switch his focus to the Zambian National Rally championship where he stands second with 74points behind his brother Jassy Singh on 100points.
“Yes I am quitting ARC so as to focus on our championship.
“I wish could continue the journey but I have to fight at home and become king of my country,” says Muna Jr.
Muna has quit after events which include Rally of South Africa, Rally of Zambia and Rally of Tanzania.
“Doing ARC has been an incredible journey. It has moulded me into a better driver carrying more experience on the shoulder,” he said
“I learnt to drive in extremely wet conditions and high attitudes in South Africa, Tanzania with many high speeds corners with tricky ruts,” he added.
He further highlighted his plans for next year’s African championship.
“Doing ARC again will depend on my finances and the free time I have.
“We all know ARC is not only expensive but also needs a lot of time,” says.
The ARC title fight now remains with Kenya’s Jaspreet Chatthe currently leading with 50points and Zambia’s Jassy Singh on 36points.
