ASRA Rally course from the Beginning; The Abdul Sidi Rally Academy lessons are open to anyone who has a heart for the sport of Rallying.
In the beginning newcomers are taught the basic knowledge of the entire sport before newcomers can divide their attention.
Those who want to be trained as Rally Drivers or Navigators, they must have a valid Driving License.
Those who don’t have driving documents, can either be trained as Time Keeper, Safety Marshal, Rally Official or any other department that touches the sport.
All the tuitions fall under the same umbrella though Rally Driving Skills come later.
For those wishing to be Rally Drivers, they must have their own rally cars though skills are provided by renowned rally drivers.
A future rally driver, has to learn and understand the language of a navigator before he or she embarks on his or her rally driving ambitions.
Theory Lessons are carried out at the Ngara Sports Club in Nairobi’s South C on Saturdays only from 12noon-2pm. Directions are provided below.
Practical lessons are carried out on locations around the Athi River Portland Cement vicinity.
Learning how to run Time Controls is also done outside Ngara Sports Club.
Children under 16 years can also attend the lessons though I strongly advise them to join GP Karting for driving skills.
