Today is a rest day for the East African Safari Classic rally with no competitive driving but hard work from service crews to get the Safari steeds in fine fettle for the last four days of this amazing event.
The mechanics weren’t the only ones getting their hands dirty as the East African Safari Classic Rally Director, Raju Kishinani, and three of the teams planted four yellow-back acacia trees in the grounds of Ol Tukai Lodge.
The teams were Viking Motosport, BMA Autosport and Kronos Vintage. The trees take about 12 years to get to full maturity so, depending on the crews persistence on this event, they may be able to see the trees in their full splendour on the 2025 East African Safari Classic!
Fifty eight ‘rested’ crews are planning to start at 07.00 tomorrow. There are three competitive sections , totalling 220 km. The day’s route finishes in Naivasha, after which there are another three days before the rally ends in Mombasa. Good luck to all the crews!
