The Iringa Rally will be making its return to the TNRC series after almost ten years.

And the persistent rains in Iringa have it all confirmed that the Mkwawa Pure Drinking Water Rally will be a wet event.

“The sections are already so slippery. So its definitely going to be more about skills than just going flat-out. But the event will have high speeds regardless with just ten percent rough.

“Besides, the slippery will also disguise our pace notes since it tends to cover up some features. And with this, the person with the best notes might register better times,” explains Moses Matovu; navigator to Harinder Deere.

The event kicks off on Saturday with scruitneering. Thereafter crews will tackle the Super Special Stage and two competitive stages to end day one.

Day two will have crews cover four stages before the first Iringa Rally winner after ten years is announced.

Meanwhile, the event is set to debut Ahmed Huwel’s newly acquired Ford Fiesta Proto to the Tanzanian rally championship.
