The East African Safari Classic Rally that was to take place from November 1 to November 9 2021 will now take place early next year, organisers have confirmed.
“Despite the regrettable news of the postponement of the 2021 East African Safari Classic, the management can now confirm that the 10th edition of the world’s greatest classic rally will take place on February 10 – 18, 2022. We are working tirelessly to ensure that we give all stakeholders a spectacular event,” said The East African Safari Classic Rally Board chairman Joey Ghose in a statement.
A full entry is expected for 2022 and the expertise of the organising team will guarantee a thoroughly professional and competitive event that will cover almost 5,000km across the region, incorporating Kenya’s finest rallying roads and, Covid-19 status permitting, with stages in neighbouring Uganda and Tanzania over nine days, returning the event to its original East African status.
To ensure we continue to fulfill our competitors desires, a Mini-Classic will run in 2021 as a taster for the event. The Mini Classic will run in Kenya for five to nine days within the original dates of November 1 – 9, 2021, observing full Covid protocols and offering a reduced entry fee for competitors.
