RECCE ENDS BUT MIYOSHI/ICHINO FACING CUSTOMS PROBLEMS

Recce for the international and local drivers ended yesterday with the drivers happy with the route in the new Kigamboni area.

Except for the long 52km section, Hakaru Ichino from Japan (Miyoshi's co-driver) and Muna Singh (Zambia) said that the average speed was almost at the limit allowed and the drivers felt a little uneasy especially at the end where there seemed to be more traffic.

Recce was not the only tension for the Miyoshi/Ichino Japanese crew whose car is still in Mombasa being cleared from customs. At 4pm today the service crew were waiting at the port to get the exit pass and will drive overnight the 500km to Dar-es-salaam.

PRESS RELEASE - Tuesday 5th February
KENYANS TO COMPETE IN ARC SEASON OPENER

Five Kenyan rally drivers feature in the entry list for the Alliance Insurance/Kobil Rally of Tanzania which starts in Dar-es-salaam on Friday this week.

Led by Azar Anwar, former 2006 Kenya National Rally Champion driving a Mitsubishi Evo 6 with co-driver Imran Khan the other drivers are Asad Anwar / Ravi Soni, Don & Sonal Smith, Raja Sehmi / Charles Kibuyu and Anwar & Sanju Pandya.

First off in Tanzania will be Zambians Muna Singh and David Sihoka in their Sunvic Subaru Impreza followed by Japanese drivers Hideaki Miyoshi and Hakaru Ichino in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo9.

15 cars will start the main ARC rally and notable absentees are the Tanzanian drivers like Omar Bakressa and Ahmed Huwel who will not drive as a mark of respect for Khalid Bakressa who was killed in a spectacular crash during the national round in Zanzibar in December 2007.

Six countries will host the 2008 FIA African Rally Championship with Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Long time supporters of the ARC South Africa pulled out of the Championship this year to promote their in-house classes of rally cars which do not comply with the FIA's technical rules.
