WRC Safari Rally kicks off in Nairobi

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday glagged off the 2021 WRC Safari Rally at KICC in Nairobi County.

From KICC, the cars were driven to Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani for a Super Special Stage before proceeding to Naivasha where they will battle through 18 competitive stages covering 320.19 km from Friday to Sunday.

The Head of State said the Safari Rally holds a special place in Kenya’s history and it indicates the ambitions of a country that is led by the dreams of young people.

The Kenya Safari Rally is the sixth round of the 2021 World Rally Championship and has attracted 58 entrants from across the globe.

“In 2013 I made a pledge to my fellow citizens that we would bring the safari rally back home and I also promised that I would return Safari Rally to its position as one of the International Automobile Federation’s and the World Rally Championships’ toughest rally. This goal has materialised nine years later into the event that we are witnessing today,” Uhuru said.
