  • Best result was 2015 - East African Safari Classic Rally.

  • Safari Rally means endurance, survival of the fittest, man and machine.
  • Africa is home.
  • I have driven a Subaru Vivio, Subaru Legacy, Subaru Forester and a Ford Escort.
  • They are all my favorite because they all have their different uniqueness.
  • A fun experience was when we rolled at the last stage of a Top Fry Classic at the flying finish….we called it the classic finish.

  • The Safari Rally brings back fond memories of being a kid and helping out during Easter Holidays. It conjures endurance, survival and not giving up.
  • Africa means home! - Rough Roads, long sweeping stages, quintessential African back drops and adventure.
  • I have driven in Subaru’s, Datsun’s, CRT, Ford Range Rovers, Land Rovers and a Mitsubishi.
  • My favourite are the Classic Cars.
  • Too many fun experiences to list. But a poignant one is the Classic Top Fry Rally in 2016, rolling after the Final Time Control and ending up in a tree.
