Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed predicts a full entry for this year’s Africa Concours d’Elegance to be held on September 25 at Ngong Race Course.

Speaking during the launch of this year’s event at the Panafric Hotel yesterday, Amina said she was confident the 50th edition of the event would attract a full entry of 70 cars and 40 motorcycles.

The event has been held annually since 1970 by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club. Organisers say already the entry list has over 40 cars and shows a strong response from motorcycle competitors.

During yesterday’s launch, Peter Wanday, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club Chairman, Phineas Kimathi, the CEO of the Kenya Motor Sport Federation (KMSF) and Renzo Bernadi, the Chairman of the Kenya Motorcycle Sports Foundation were all present.

Renzo Bernadi will be the chief car judge during this year’s event. Among the 40 who have so far entered the event is a rare 1990 Lancia Delta Integrale which will be driven down the judging line by an enthusiast from Tanzania.

Among the other entries from outside Kenya is Kakoozar Wazir who will be driving from Kampala to contest the event.

Tumaini Muthiga will have a busy day rushing from the car judging line in front of the Racecourse grandstands with his 1967 Ford Taunus to run to the motorcycle judging ring where he will be riding his giant Harley Davidson motorcycle.
