Bright and early the track side started becoming bee hive of activity as competitors started arriving. Documentation, scrutiny, last minute tune up and overall anticipation created a controlled chaos.
Soon the roars of vehicles taking the start flag filled the air. Time watches were deployed to check competition. Last minute instructions were shouted. And then the race was on. Intense concentration to cover the for kilometer track was needed.
Before you knew it the run was over and then wait for results started along with discussion on what went well and how it all could improve.
Entry list is closed and all participants are advised to get their document and vehicle scrutiny completed.
We have made special arrangements to issue Personal Accident Insurance to any participant who may require the same through National Insurance Company. This policy can be taken out by registering with us at the rally office up tp 21:00hrs today.
