Quentin Mitchell

  • Nationality: Kenyan
  • Age: 34
  • Started rallying at age 21- started with Autocross
  • Youngest crew to compete in East African Safari Classic Rally with Russell Savage and combined age of 43 years. The 1976 Triumph GT6, MK2 was older than our combined age in 2007.
  • Greatest Event: East African Safari Classic Rally- it is the ultimate test of a crews fortitude and the cars strength.
  • Would like to rally in Sardinia- WRC.
  • I have rallied in Kenya, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
  • Best result 2nd overall in the Nakuru Rally 2015.
  • Relationship to navigator: Driver
  • Safari Rally means to compete in the safari in a good car is a childhood/ lifelong dream come true.
  • Africa means home, beauty, adventure
  • I have driven in Triumph GT6 MK2, Mitsubishi Evo 7,EVO 8, Subaru Impreza N14, Skoda S2000.
  • Favourite car is the Skoda S2000
  • Fun experiences being the 2014 Safari Rally where the new Skoda S2000 arrived at 6:30 am, 3 hours to start of rally and we unloaded it on the side of the Mombasa road. After problems on day 1 left us at the back of the field, we had an overnight service, sorted the issues and by lunchtime the following day we were lying 4th overall. From there was a question of catching 3rd. By the start of day 3, we had 1min 18 seconds to catch. In opening stage, Loldaigas, we took 1min 12 seconds from Manvir Baryan in 3rd. This had to be my best drive and biggest success. New car, never driven a LHD, sequential gearbox and a new navigator.
