Rajbir Rai to hang his helmet at the end of
the 2016 KNRC season
Kenya’s fastest rally youngster Rajbir Rai has
announced his retirement from the sport after
years of brilliant displays.
Rajbir, the 2014 Pearl of Africa Uganda rally
and Kisumu rally winner announced after the
conclusion of the 2016 KCB Eldoret rally at
Chemweno farm that he will be quitting the
sport after the season closing Guru Nanak
Rally. The son of legendary Sarbi Rai admitted
candidly that he needs a fresh impetus in his
life, hence the decision to hang up his gloves
and balaclavas.
rajbir
“I just wanna have some fun in the remaining
two events coz I am retiring at the end of the
season. I have had a good five seasons and I
feel I have other things now.”-Rajbir.
Rajbir started his racing career with driving
buggies at Jamhuri Park prior to moving to
the 2WD class in his dad’s old VW Golf.

Tapio Laukkanen Wins KCB Kisumu Rally 2015

0

Former Finland Rally champion, Tapio
Laukkanen, led from start to win the
KCB Kisumu Rally on Saturday.
It was the season-opening race of the
2015 Kenya National Rally
Championship.
Laukkanen led from start to finish in
an out-dated Subaru Impreza, which
was previously driven by Manvir
Baryan.
The Fin is not new to Kenya, having
been here on regular basis to train rally
drivers with his professional skills
through his rally school.
“I am very pleased to have won the
rally though I’m feeling dizzy after the
heat in the car. My energy level has
also gone down because of the heat,”
said Laukkanen.
When asked about the difference in the
wintry weather conditions that made
him a champion in Finland, he
responded by saying that he could not
compare the Kenyan event with his
home rallies as it gets extremely hot,
not only outside the car but more inside
it with unbearable temperatures.
In 1996, he won the Finnish Rally
Championship in a Volkswagen Golf
GTi, while in 1999 he won the British
Rally Championship with a Renault
Mégane Maxi.
Among others, he has trained Onkar Rai
and Manvir Baryan. He also took part
in one of the KNRC rounds last year, but
retired due to a mechanical fault.
Jaspreet Chatthe took full advantage of
his home event by clinching on to the
second place in yet another “old’ car.
DAMAGED CAR
His Mitsubishi Lancer EVO10 was
placed 54 seconds adrift of the Fin, who
is vying for the entire 2015 KNRC series
under the local Competition License
issued by the Kenya Motor Sports
Federation.
Rajbir Rai’s dream of winning the rally
for the second time ended disastrously
after his Ford Fiesta rolled it in the
third competitive stage of the day.
Both driver and navigator walked out
unscathed though the car was slightly
damaged.
Rai (Onkar), who is among the top
drivers to have been trained by
Laukkanen, was placed in the third
place in yet another Mitsubishi Lancer
EVO10.
He was followed home in the fourth
place by the current national
champion, Baldev Chager, whose
similar version of the Lancer lost
valuable minutes after a puncture in
the final stages of the competition.

Carl Tundo Press Briefing Statement On KCB Malindi Rally 2014

0

I owe it to my supporters, sponsors, family and friends to give you the facts on what happened on the press release below.
‘Without prejudice’
My initial disqualification that was much later over turned was based on 2 points.
1. I blocked the road
2. I told the controller at the end of the section that stage had been cancelled.
The section in question was a track and in many places there was no way 2 cars could pass. After going past 1 spectator car in the section I came acoss another at high speed and narrowly missed. This was on a stretch of road that neither of us could pass for about 100 meters. After eventually getting the spectator into a safe place, as we were on a corner, I pulled over to where other rally cars could pass. This is not to say that it was safe for the second rally car to pass as the spectator car was still blocking the road. I told Tim to get out and slow baldev down and to get the spectator car off the road as they were clearly in a state of shock by the closeness we came to hitting them and I turned my phone on and called C.o.C Roy Mcenzie and informed him of the events and asked him what we should do next. He thanked us and said he could not make the decision alone and would call back. This whole process took about 3 mins as baldy then arrived. We told him what had happened and that we were waiting for a call from CoC. He pulled up beside us. After another 5-7mins we had not been called so I called the CoC back. He told us that he had spoken to the Kmsf marshal john kamau and he instructed us to get back in the cars and drive out the section and that they would deal with the times. At this point rajbir rai arrived and we also informed him of the incident. I also suggested to Roy that he should call the controller at the beginning of the section to warn drivers of the incident and he said the section would still run and they were not going to close it. Incidentally another spectator car came against rally traffic at this point. We then as per instructions drove out the section non-competitively in convoy and took our time at the control and continued with the rally assuming those that were affected would receive a bogey time. At this time baldy led followed by rajbir and then me. I assumed that the rest of the competitors were warned that the section was unsafe but I now realise non of them were.
