Baryan crashes, Rai triumphs in dramatic KCB Meru Rally

In Summary
Onkar Rai

Onkar Rai, navigated by Gavin Laurance, won a dramatic KCB Meru Rally driving a VW Polo on Saturday as Manvir Baryan and Drew Stock suffered a horrific crash in their Skoda.

It was Volkswagen Polo’s first win since making it’s rally debut three events ago in the KCB Kenya National Rally Championship.

The first time a Volkswagen won a round of the Kenya National Rally Championship was in 1994 when Sammy Aslam won the Kenya Motor Sports Club event in a VW Golf GTi.

However, the serious accident involving the Skoda Fabia of Baryan marred the weekend.

Baryan, the three times   African Champion, summersaulted his Skoda Fabia several times in Stage Four of the competition before coming to an abrupt stop.
