The fastest man in a rally car vs the fastest man in Africa

Reigning WRC champion Kalle Rovanperä took on a challenge of another kind last Saturday in Nairobi, lining up for a unique race against Africa’s fastest 100m sprinter Ferdinand Omanyala.

Rovanperä lined up a Toyota GR Yaris against Omanyala, who has a personal-best time of 9.77sec in the 100m, an African record.

The stunt is part of Toyota Gazoo Racing’s promotional activities ahead of this week's Safari Rally Kenya (22 - 25 June).
