The BGMsport built TR8 wins 2017 Kenya Airways East African Safari Rally
Carl “ Flash “ Tundo takes a very well deserved victory on this years event though shared the top honours with Richard Jackson and Ryan Champion in the Tuthill Porsche after a bazaar decision by the organisers to declare this result.
After an issue with a stage on Thursday, the penultimate day, where cars got stuck in a mud hole , including the Tuthill Porsche, Flash won the stage by almost and hour and after a protest by the Tuthill Porsche, the stage was cancelled, and then after the event finished on Friday, overturned!!!!! After much complicated conferring the organisers decided to give the win to both crews, a very strange decision but that’s how it ended.
Both drivers drove really well for the whole event and what a shame it ended bitter sweet for all.
Frank Tundo, in the second BGMsport built car finished 6th overall and rounded off a great result for BGMsport and the Tundo Rally Team.
Well done to all involved, co-drivers Tim Jessop and Gavin Laurence doing a fine job guided the drivers round.
We now look forward to what will be a fantastic event the Rift Valley 1000 next Easter.
