Coastweek -- Naushad Kara and Adnan Din in action in their Subaru stalwart.
Leader Naushad, Amit, Arjun, Dinesh Sign Up for
the Night Final Round of MMC Series Set for MCL

Coastweek -- Former Coast Champion and series leader Naushad Kara Lota is leaving nothing to chance ahead of the season ending Mombasa Motor Club Rally slated for Mombasa Cement Limited’s new track in North Coast on December 15 at 07:15.

Naushad, a diehard Subaru stalwart will reunite with recently crowned KNRC Division 2 and S Class champion Adnan Din.

Adnan guided Sohanjeet Singh Puee to their fairytale double KNRC success.

Sohanjeet will not be entering the MMC event though.

“I would have loved to enter in the last MMC round as it is always a well organised and fun event but unfortunately I have other commitments.

“However, I would like to wish the entrants the best of luck and I’m sure they will enjoy the event and drive flat out as always,” said Sohan, one of the fastest rising KNRC youngsters from the ever green MMC stable.

Naushad, who is seeking to recuperate the MMC title had this to say: “It will be quite exciting to recapture the title on homestretch, and a great pleasure reuniting with Adnan.

Coastweek -- Dinesh Varsani and Paras Patel are seeking to end the season on a high.

“Our Subaru project has indeed come to fruition and I wish to thank the team for their dedication and levelheadedness.”

Also in the MMC night rally mix is the Subaru GC8 Team DnA duo.

DnA duo of Arjun and Dinesh are currently working round the clock to complete the double Subaru N10 project well in time for the 2019 season.

Arjun Pattni: Yes, we are looking forward to more action on the KNRC front next year as we are building two new N10s for the season. We started this project last month, hopefully they’ll be ready by end month.”

Yalfa team KNRC Division 2 duo of Ammar Haq and Victor Okundu as well as Coast Pekee’s Izzy Mirza is undecided on the event.

Kamlesh Panya who is also out of town is also skipping the season ender.

Meanwhile, Dinesh Varsani will be aiming to finish the year on a high when the season-ending Mombasa Motor Club Night Rally brings the 2018  Coast Rally Championship to its conclusion.

The final round of the 2018 MMC event will take place on December 15 at Mombasa Cement Limited track in North Coast.

Dinesh commented: “We all love coming back to the MCL track and it will of course be extra special this time round as it is the last rally event on the calendar and indeed a night sprint.

“Compared to the usual daylight rallies, the situation here will be very different. It is a really nice area for rallying and a great place to finish the Championship.

“The year 2018 has been an eventful one for us, as we had a couple of MMC club rallies to gauge our preparedness for a national autocross and a KNRC.

“We took part in all these events and managed to finish all of them, thanks to the team’s unswerving support.

“We were excited to finish KNRC Mombasa Rally in position 10. Our aim for the season was to enjoy and complete all rallies, since we were not going for championship points.

“Starting next season in 2019 we hope to take our campaign to the next level as our team is preparing two new N10 Subaru cars. MMC Rallies have really helped us up our ante.

“The home series has not only enhanced cohesion but also helped me and my navigator understand our pacenotes better.”
