ACE driver Emmanuel Katto has promised a better performance at home next month after finishing 24th in the KCB Safari rally. Katto is confident the Kenyan race was a perfect warm-up for the Pearl of Africa Uganda rally, the 3rd leg of the African Rally Championship.

Zimbabwean world junior champion Conrad Rautenbach outpaced day-one leader Japanese Miyoshi Hideaki to win the Safari rally last weekend.

“In fact after we fixed our alternator, we posted exactly the same time as Rautenbach on the next stage. I am now confident that we can tame both Rautenbach and Miyoshi,” Katto stated.
