Asad clinches 4WD title in autocross round four

The fourth round of the Kenya National Autocross held at the Gicheha Farm witnessed a thrilling tussle in the four wheel drive turbo class with Asad Anwar emerging the winner while Yuvraj Matharu edged four competitors to claim the Bambino class on Monday.

The 4WD race featured some high-profile names including the legendary Azad Anwar, his brother Asad, Frank Tundo, Rehan Shah, McRae Kimathi and Kenneth Nteere.

Asad registered the fastest time in heat two clocking 01:54:55 minutes, maintaining 01:55:00 in heats 2 and 3.

“Thanks to the involvement of KCB (event sponsors) I’m now back in full swing. Their sponsorship has seen over 30 entries today which is a sign of positive things to come. The circuit was excellent and I’m glad to have won today,” Asad said in the post-race interview.

Shahil Munghal drove two seconds faster in the final heat to grab the crown from the season Gillian Bailey. Ryan Bailey continued to impress aiming for the top crown this season clocking 06:0877 ahead of Rio Smith.
