Overheating in Tomcat V8 costs Geoff Mayes victory in Kajiado

Maxxis Kenya missed out on a debut win for the new RAZR MT tyres, recently launched into Kenya, when Geoff Mayes, at the wheel of a powerful Tomcat V8 was forced out of the SPV lead during KCB Kajiado Rally, reports Samson Ateka.

Mayes, co-driven by lady navigator Suzanne Zwager, had powered into an early SPV lead and had his sights set on a top 10 overall position when the tight and twisty nature of the 50km long Lisa Farm Stage caused the powerful V8 to start to overheat, a problem many drivers encountered.

Although the crew managed to nurse the car back to service they were time barred by a mere three minutes and were not able to continue.

Geoff noted: "We had a lot of fun and have proved that the car is really competitive, although we nearly rolled it on one stage!

"The overheating is an issue that was unique to that stage and those conditions and we are confident that we won’t struggle again."

Mayes and Zwager, managers of the five start Chui Safari Lodge in Naivasha, now turn their attention to the opening Rally raid of the season, the Amiran Simba Raid, which will take place in Naivasha this weekend.

The collaboration between Maxxis Kenya and Geoff Mayes, who is also a brand ambassador for "Hands off our Elephants" will see regular social media competitions where the general public can win a variety of prizes from merchandise to free Maxxis products.

The team is also kindly supported by Silverspread Meru Rally Team and H2Prohydrate Kenya.
