Three MML Sports cars in top four at Eldoret Rally

Three of the top four positions in the recent Eldoret rally were held by cars built by MML Sports, with Carl ‘Flash’ Tundo holding second overall in the Kenyan national Rally Championship standings in an MML car.

The third round of the KNRC saw 20 crews entered to compete over the seven stages, totalling 138 Km. While many crews were wary of wet weather approaching, the event remained dry with dusty and rough conditions ahead.

MML Sports had three cars running on the event; Team Kibos’ Jassi Chatthe in his Mitsubishi Lancer EvolutionX R4, Chager Baldev in the Kabras Sugar Team’s matching R4 EvoX and for the first season, Carl ‘Flash’ Tundo in a third R4 EvoX, under the Top Fry Racing banner.

It was hardly surprising that former FIA World Rally Championship and British Rally Championship driver, Tapio Laukkanen set the pace and by the end of the event, had used his vast experience to take the win over Chatthe, in second place. Chager was 15 seconds further back and Tundo was just 20 seconds adrift in fourth, making three MML Sports R4 EvoXs in the top four.

However, what is more impressive is that all three finished ahead of the two Skoda R5 cars entered in the event, driven by Baryan Singh and Onkar Rai, the latter formerly an MMLS R4 driver but now, 1m30s behind the leading R4.

Commenting, MML Sports Managing Director, John Easton, said; “While I’m obviously disappointed that we didn't get a win this weekend, I am more pleased that we had three cars in the top four. I think this demonstrates once again that our cars are both fast and reliable, particularly when compared with the R5 Skodas and R5 Fiesta.

“It's also good to see Flash maintaining second on the KnRC standing in his first season at the wheel of an MML Sports R4 – he clearly seems at home right away and I’m looking forward to more success for all the cars as the year goes on.”

Wins in the book for MML Sports already this season

Rally cars prepared by British automotive and motorsport specialist MML Sports have already begun claiming victories this season, just a handful of events into the year.

Chris van Woensel took the win on his first outing on the Rallye National Epernay Vins de Champagne over the first weekend of April. Having claimed one win in 2016 in his MML Sports-prepared Mitsubishi Lancer WRC, he set out his stall early, taking the fastest time on eight of the rally’s 13 stages to lead from the second test. He eventually won the event by more than a minute, ahead of Raphael Bouchy in a Citroen DS3 World Rally Car.

Meanwhile, Team Kibos’ Jaspreet Chatthe was again at the wheel of his MML Sports-prepared Mitsubishi Lancer EvolutionX R4, contesting both the FIA African and the Kenyan rally championships, each of which he won in 2015.

Once again, Jassi’s pace was unquestionable but circumstances conspired to prevent this pace becoming a representative result. On the famous Safari Rally, an uncharacteristic error meant he went the wrong way on a stage and was given a ten-minute penalty as a result. This meant that he eventually finished sixth overall and 8m26s behind the winner. Clearly, without the penalty, he would have claimed a dominant win for the third time in his career.

In addition, a rare mistake in the third round of the ARC, the South Africa Rally, meant he went off the road while leading the event again and lost some 19 minutes before he could regain the stage. Even with this time loss, he was still classified third in the ARC standings, so instead of a healthy lead, he now occupies second place after three of the seven rounds.

Commenting, MML Sports Managing Director, John Easton, said: “It was great to kick off Chris’ year with a win – nothing sets you up for a season better than a win first time out.

“Jassi had a bit of a rude awakening at the start of the year, missing out on another win on the Safari Rally and then, a mistake costing him the win again in South Africa. But we’re in a solid second place and there are four rounds to go in the African Rally Championship, so I’m hopeful that we can regain lost ground by the end of the year and add another trophy to Team Kibos’ and MML Sports’ cabinets.”
