|Africa Eco Race: KTM Kini Rally-Team at the Rally, NPO´s Emma Clair to start.|
With more good news arriving almost every day the 5th edition of the "Sonangol Africa Eco Race" has been creating a lot of interest in the Cross Country Rally world as the dynamic organization team comes up with more ideas to make the experience as full as possible for teams in every category.
Last year KTM sent a representative to the Sonangol Africa Race because for the 2013 edition they plan on entering a team of "Movie Stars" covered by Austrian television following their training with Marc Coma and then their daily adventures on the way to Dakar.
Heinz Kinigadner has just confirmed this and also that KTM will enter more pilots. "Kini Rally Team" can also provide riders in spear parts, tires, engine, etc. It is already possible to contact the team for any specific request: Isabell Kinigadner, Phone : +43 5244 99 871, Mail: [ firstname.lastname@example.org ].
The Rally is happy to announce the participation of this charming quad rider. Who hasn't heard of Emma Clair? This young woman is the manager of NPO, organisers of the "OiLibya Rallys" in Tunisia and Morocco. But some people don't know that she arrived in the discipline by crossing tracks at the handlebars of a Quad:
"Since I was 5 years old I practised for cross-country racing on a motorbike as well as a quad and loved it! In 2006, I tried the Dakar on a Quad and it was an incredible experience. And it's also when I met the man of my life, Stéphane, who was participating in motorcycle."
She continued: "For a few years, I looked after all the competitors taking part in our rallies so I didn't have time to participate. But when our baby Léo was born, I gave myself the challenge to race again. I decided this year to try to be the first woman to arrive at the Lac Rose in Quad. But my biggest happiness is to cross the African tracks with my family and to experience this beautiful adventure with Stéphane and Tom, his 16 year old son who will drive in a car".
For the last Africa Race a special trophy for vehicles with two rigid axles was initiated which was won by Salim Kamoun in a Toyota GRJ 79. After this success the Trophy for 2 rigid axle vehicles will be continued for the 5th edition of the Sonangol Africa Race with a prize for the winners of this category.
Like every year the Africa Race offers the competitors preferential rates. There is a 900 Euros discount per person entering and between 250 and 700 Euros per vehicle, depending on the category. But to take advantage of these advantageous entry rates it is imperative to send back the entry form and to pay 500 euro per person and per vehicle before July 31st, 2012. An opportunity not to be missed...
