2008 Rwanda Rally Results

DAVITE WINS RWANDA MOUNTIAN GORILLA RALLY 2008

By Abdul Sidi in Kigali, Rwanda

Giancarlo Davite won his home round of the Rwanda Mountain Gorilla Rally driving a Subaru Impreza yesterday

Peter Horsey, who clinched the Pirelli Star Driver title, was placed in the second place in a Mitsubishi lancer with Moses Matovu of Uganda. The Mombasa-based driver led the event until the final stage when his car stopped due to a puncture.

It was also a bad luck for Tanzania’s Navraj Hans who led the event only to loose it Davite on the final stage of the rally.

Raaji Bharij, who had pinned high hopes on winning the PSD title, encountered numerous problems resulting to retirement on the final day.

His Subaru Impreza started off on a flying note with fastest stage time on Friday before it succumbed first to puncture, broken brake pipe and eventually a damaged centre diff. He looked a disappointed driver given that he had put every effort to get to this stage.

“It was bad luck all the way. I just don’t know how to express my feelings after having put all the resources in getting to the finals in Rwanda,’’ said Bharij.

Other retirements included Essa Mohamed of Zambia, Chase Attwel (Zimababwe) and Matheiu Adrianjafy of Madagascar. They were part of the PSD contenders.

Only nine cars finished out of the 16 starters. Bharij, Chase Attwel (Zimbabwe) and Mathieu Adrianjafy of Madagascar failed to take full advantage of the Super Rally rules.

The provisional results:

1. Giancarlo Davite (Subaru Impreza) 3hr.45.28mins;

2. Peter Horsey (Mitsubishi Lancer) 3:45.37;

3. Navraj Hans (Mitsubishi Lancer) 3:45.37;

4. Rudy Cantanhede (Subaru Impreza) 3:47.36;

5. Christakis Fitidis (Subaru Impreza) 3:48.35;

6. Alex Horsey (Mitsubishi Lancer) 3:54.39;

7. Valerry Nukera (Subaru Impreza) 4:00.02;

8. Alain Dethise (Subaru Impreza) 4:2.22;

9. Eleftere Mitraros (Subaru Impreza) 4:34.44;
