Champion, Baldev ‘Boldy’ Chager reckons his title defense will only become visible when he takes the fight to leader Carl ‘Flash’ Tundo.

But even as the KCB Kenya National Rally Championship series awaits four rounds to conclude, Baldy says there will be no two ways about it.

“That means we have to try to score maximum points if we are to revive our defense of the championship,” said Chager.

Chager and Tundo will face off in the fifth round – the KCB Assets Finance Rally- set for Nanyuki and Timau on July 17-18.

Chager, incidentally the Nanyuki winner last year, believes the chilled-out farm fields in Timau will be a good hunting ground for both Mitsubishi and Subaru makes.

Tundo and Lee Rose’s EVO 9s have proved quite formidable, though Subaru N-series have excelled in the rough.

Neutral ground

“We hope the rally will be a neutral ground for both makes of cars to level out the playing field.

“But we will not loose hope in keeping our Subaru (N12) flag flying.

“There are four events to go and things can change anyway. We have to keep ourselves prepared at our best to ensure there are no retirements,” said Chager who finished second behind Lee Rose in Nakuru’s KCB Easy Pay Loans Rally.

Chager readily admits Tundo (despite retiring in Mogotio) still has a good points margin and has to really play safe to wein the championship.

Tundo despite his exit in Mogiotio consolidated his lead with 280 cumulative points with his Dalbit teammate also second on 215. Chager has 180poinmts and lee Rose 155.

Chager skipped the opening round in Eldoret while Rose didn’t participate in the Thika, Eldoret events.

Kenyans have been praised as resilient and this is reflected in the real estate sector where, in the face of sky rocketing prices that have put many properties out of the reach of millions, investors are now exploring the relatively new concept of syndicated properties.
