Manvir Baryan, who recently won the third consecutive African Rally Championship title, will be in Mombasa next week for the fourth round of the Kenya KCB 2019 National Rally Championship.

While the Skoda Fabia driver proved himself unbeaten in the ARC series, he has not stamped his authority on the local series only after winning the 2017 Mombasa Rally and the Kajiado Rally in the same year.

Baryan will be one of the leading crew who is preparing for the Mombasa Motor Club event which will have a night stage in between his plans. The event will run next Friday.

The rally will start from the KCB branch in Kilifi. The shortest stage is 5 km while the longest is 42 km. In total, this event will have nine competitive stages with a total of 160 km.

The second day's action will take place on Saturday by car to Bamba before returning to finish at Mombasa Cement.

Manjasa-based Sohanjeet Puee and Mombasa-based Adan lead the Division One racer and navigator championship after the Safari Rally.

The crew is preparing to overcome the round of houses of the 2019 KCB Kenya National Rally Championship 2019 despite facing difficulties without the proper sponsors other than Nanak Engineering.

Speaking with Nation Sport, Din said: "We have been looking forward to holding the Mombasa Rally because this is a rally on the calendar close to our house and it would be great to have a night stage in the KNRC rally."

Karan Patel and James Mwangi sure will add valuable points in the Group S category by remembering the Mombasa Rally.

The crew will be at the helm of the Subaru GC8, which has pushed them to lead the current Group S standings. Their best result this season is winning the Arusha Rally in Tanzania.

Class S Class is for production and tour vehicles (formerly FIA Group A8) running in total accordance with the FIA ​​homology paper but with a turbo limiter currently in force in Group N (33mm limiter).

Daren Miranda and Wayne Fernandes will also handle the Mombasa Rally to try and maintain their lead in the Formula Two Championship driving the Subaru Impreza.

The F2 vehicle is a two-wheel drive car, either rear or front wheel drive under a capacity of 3,000 cc cubic and with a normal aspiration engine.

Some drivers will not travel to Mombasa for different reasons.

Denish Halai, the boss of the Shamba Boys team which includes his son, Mahesh and Ketan's brother said: "We will not go to Mombasa because there are a lot of work commitments and travel time requires handling rally."

Similar sentiments were shared by Nikhil Sachania, Champion of SPV. He said he would not be able to travel to Mombasa for personal reasons.
