Challenge

  • Mechanical sympathy. Some sections are so rocky they must be tackled at little more than walking pace. Drivers must resist the temptation to treat the Safari like a normal gravel event. 
  • Heavy rain brings an additional challenge to an already gruelling rally. Few will have come across the deep water and unbelievably slippery mud that can replace dusty roads in a matter of minutes.
  • Expect the unexpected. In Kenya, anything can happen!

 

Car spec

  • Gravel suspension.
  • The ride height will be lifted above the norm for a traditional gravel event to allow for the rocky roads.
  • Pirelli’s hard and soft compound Scorpion tyres available.
