The East African Safari Classic Rally that was to take place on 1-9 November 2021 has been rescheduled for early next year organisers have confirmed. “Despite the regrettable news of the postponement of the 2021 event, the management can now confirm that it will take place on 10th – 18th February 2022. We are working tirelessly to ensure that we give all stakeholders a spectacular event,” said East African Safari Classic Rally Board Chairman Joey Ghose.
A full entry that includes some past and present rally stars is expected, including latest to enter, former Junior World Rally Champion and former Subaru Motorsports Factory driver, Patrik Sandel, who will be driving one of eight Tuthill Porsche-entered cars, along with 2019 winners Austrians Kris Rosenberger and Nicola Bleicher. Safari regulars Andrew Sidall, Geoff Bell and Ian Duncan are also on the entry list. The organising team have guaranteed a thoroughly professional and competitive event that will cover almost 5,000kms across the region, incorporating Kenya’s finest rallying roads and, COVID-19 permitting, with stages in neighbouring Uganda and Tanzania over nine days, returning the event to its original East African status.
