The oryx energies rally of Tanzania will be the 3rd round of the African rally championship 2020/2021 after Ivory Coast’s Rallye Bandama and Kenya’s Equator rally.
Carl Tundo and Guy Botterill will off again after the Equator rally battle in Kenya ended up in favor of the MINTI MOTORSPORT VW Polo R5 driver Flash Tundo with a win.
Botterill failed to reach the last flying finish after his Toyota Etios R4 breaking down in the last stage only to be time-barred and was excluded from the event.
The two drivers are joint ARC table leaders with 30 points from the two rounds done so far, and according to the latest entry list of Oryx energies rally, Tundo will return in the VW Polo R5 fresh from the WRC safari rally where he finished 9th overall and 3rd in WRC 3 category.
Guy Botterill will bounce back in the Toyota Etios R4 after missing out on the WRC Safari rally, where he put it clearly as he had no reason to participate since he is vying for the African rally championship, yet the time frame between the two events couldn’t favor the team to do both events.
The Highland Ubena Estates in Dar-es-Salam will host the event from 23-25th July 2021 as crews fight for the championship points to sort out table standings.
