The Guru Nanak rally Tanzania 2020 has attracted a number of stars from East Africa and seems it will be epic.
Scheduled on 8th November, all eyes will be on the Tanzania’s version of Guru Nanak to be held in Arusha, though Kenya too always stage an event with a similar name.
Kenyan 5 time safari winner Carl “flash” Tundo will be out to tackle the event in his formidable Mitsubishi Evo x, co~driven by Tim Jossep and his target is to try a win.
The team Top fry driver talked to Hapasport and remarked ”I showed interest in doing Guru Nanak Yes, and I have always wanted to do Arusha rally as have done some of the routes in the classic and they were fun” said Tundo.
“We will go have fun and try to win,….I’m sure everyone is as frustrated as I am that there are limited events, (especially here in Kenya) – patience and hopefully the organising bodies work out how to put on events with COVID around so we can get back to rallying. In the meantime stay safe” added Tundo.
Same to the Ugandan champion crew 2019 Yassin Nasser and Ali Katumba who have transited their Subaru GVB enroute Arusha already.
The Moil team co~driver Ali Katumba in his words said, “We shall be doing the Guru Nanak rally as one of our testing rounds in preps for the 2021 season. We are all set and ready to rumble”.
The event has attracted more foreign entries especially from Kenya like Ian Duncan the 10 time winner of Guru Nanak Kenyan version, and among others are Karan Patel who will be out with a Ford fiesta R5 and Hussein Malik in the Mitsubishi Evo x and Hamza Anwar who will debut his newly built Subaru GVB
The one day event will tackle a total distance of 215.38km and its the 4th round of Tanzania National Rally championship.
