Safari Rally is and has been a huge part of my life. Like many Kenyan families, Easter was synonymous with the Safari Rally. We as a family have been involved in the event on one way or another since I was a youngster. I was later involved as a service crew member and as a driver.- to conclude the Safari conjures several emotions- all good ones.
Africa is home, where I come from and belong.
Cars Driven: Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Evo 4, 8, 9, Ford Escort Mk2. Also driven other cars both modern and classic- Porsche 911, Datsun 240Z, Ford Escort Mk1 to name a few.
Favourite Car: Evo 4, Evo 9 and Escort Mk2
