2009 PRESS RELEASE NO 1
ZAMBIA INTERNATIONAL RALLY 2009 TO GULP US$60, 000
By IGNATIUS MAZEKO

LUSAKA, Tuesday 03.06.09

THE Zambia Motor Sport Association (ZMSA) requires K300 million (about US$60, 000) to successfully host this season’s 557.45 kilometre Zambia International Rally to be held in Lusaka on the weekend of July 3-5. 

Zambia International Rally chairman Sam Ching’ambu disclosed this morning at the Lusaka Motor Club in the Showgrounds where the rally, the fourth tier of this season’s FIA African Rally Championship (ARC) series, was officially launched.

Ching’ambu said he is positive the organising committee will raise the money, which is K50 million (about $10, 000) more than the budget for last year’s edition that was won by Japanese Hideaki Miyoshi.

He explained that the money would be spent on among other things like purchasing air tickets, accommodation and allowances for four International Automobile Federation (FIA) officials coming from Kenya, South Africa and Zimbabwe. 
The ZMSA vice-president appealed to the business community to support, which is also a round of the Zambian champion as well as the Zim-Zam challenge, by helping the organising committee raise the K300 million.
“Our target for this event…we are targeting to run this event successfully with a budget of K300 million. This is the money we hope to spend on among other things like bringing in FIA officials, accommodating them and paying them allowances.
At this stage we are appealing to the business community to be part of this year’s Zambia International Rally,” he said.

He also disclosed that the organisers were expecting no fewer than 10 foreign crews that will include current African championship leader James Whyte of Zimbabwe and about 15 locals to compete in event.

He named the notable foreign drivers as being Whyte’s three countrymen Attwell, Craig Green, Richard Robinson, Emmanuel Katto, Jas Mangat both from Uganda, the Rwandese pair of Olivier Costa, Giancarlo Davite and South African lady Lola Verlaque.
The expected locals are Abdalla Hamad, Ashish Patel, Azim Ticklay, Jimmy Dons, Joseph Felemenga, Ken Mukosa, national champion and Zambia’s flag bearer in the Africa Pirelli Star Driver (PSD) race Mohammed Essa, Muna Singh and Paul Monge.

Ching’ambu also revealed that the rally headquarters has moved for the first time in five years from Southern Sun Ridgeway (formerly Holiday Inn) to Barn Resorts (formerly Barn Motel.

“The start and finish of the rally will be at Barn Resorts our, new Rally Headquarters (Rally HQ). Barn Resorts takes over from Holiday Inn (now Southern Sun Ridgeway) who are not part of the rally this year.

I would like to take this opportunity and thank them most sincerely for the support they have rendered to us over the years,” he said.

Southern Sun Ridgeway, then trading under the name Holiday Inn, has been the Zambia International Rally HQ from 2004 having taken over reigns from Taj Pamodzi Hotel.

Ching’ambu said the rally’s competitive stages (CSs) are the same as last year’s. The rally will have a total of 19 CSs, four be run on day one followed by 10 and five respectively on day two and three respectively. – Ends…/
