Issa Amwari is officially under Menengai Oil Racing. To help you understand how big of a deal this is: We were hosted by Phineas Kimathi at Valencia Gardens, the MD Menegai oil- Onkar Rai was in attendance, Baldev Charger and his Kabras-branded team, Kigo Kareithi who’s the newly elected Vice-chair of the KRDA (Kenya Rally Drivers Association) and a whole lot of beauties. Issa 's chosen navigator, Edward Njoroge was also there- quite a 'culture shock' it's going to be for him as well. The learning curve begins.
The realisation that this was really happening clearly hadn’t hit Issa, which was all too evident when it came to his speech. You could really tell that this meant everything to him. He worked so hard this past year to make this happen and finally the last bits of the jigsaw were coming this together.
His gratitude to Onkar was so heartfelt everyone had to laugh to keep from looking awkward. It is not common in any form of motorsport for a competitor to come to the aid of another’s. What Onkar did was a big sign of what can be achieved when we
are one. This is a difficult sport and it is bloody expensive, frankly anyone in it has some degree of madness. It is that madness that keeps us together and it is that madness that will drive us to Kajiado this weekend to watch and do what we love.
From Issa Amwari Rallying, we wish all competitors the best. For the Fans, drive safe, don’t drink and drive. We do this for you and it’s no use if in the process we lose you.
