Duncan leads Kenyan contingent in Classic Rally

22 November 2013, 09:13

Nairobi - Ian Duncan leads the way for the Kenyan contingent in the East African classic Safari Rally as it enters its second day proper, Friday.

Duncan driving a Ford Capri, finished the first day of action second on the overall log, a second behind Stig Blomqvist and three seconds above Bjorn Waaldegarrd who lies in third place.

Alaistar Cavenagh is the other Kenyan in the top five, five seconds off the pace in his Ford Escort Mark 2.

Duncan was happy with the start he made.

" It is always good to start well and get going in the best way possible. The car has responded well for a start but it is an eight day race in the end so I have to hope for the best.

2011 champion Waaldegard was impressed with his car but agreed that it was still early in the day.

" We had to be careful on the first stage. Although the Zero car had gone through an hour or so before, we had to dodge quite a lot of non-competing vehicles and particularly cows – who of course did not understand about the rally, through they do now ! And we had a few cows on the quick stage through the sisal. But the car is going well and it is a long way yet.

The Safari Classic continues Friday with two more competitive sections in Kenya before crossing into Tanzania for two days of action before returning to Kenya for another four days of rallying that will finish back in Mombasa on Friday next. (Additional reporting by official Classic Rally team).
