Competitive Day 6 saw car number 7, the Amigos beer branded car of Steve and John Millington, grimly onto their fourth overall on the 2013 East Classic Safari Rally.

route was shortened to 116 kilometres of mileage but that didn’t that it was easy going. The faced everything from sharp rain showers to clouds of fine dust, the odd deep river crossing to add variety.

The route for today saw the competing on private wildlife around the Lake Naivasha of the Rift Valley. The opening through the Kedong Ranch only have been 32 long but it featured long of thick dust that likened to driving in snow in Sweden, except slightly

The hampered visibility also that navigation was tricky but road rallying champion Millington was in his element and the pair did to hold off the locals behind The longest section of the day was through the Wildlife Conservancy where the BTR/Dansport-prepared Datsun 260Z was to slow for herds of zebra across the plains in front of and Steve even spied a watching from behind an tree!

The big talk of this second was the series of river crossings, deeper than the previous But lessons learned in 2011 that the rivers presented no and Steve and John ended the day an increased gap between themselves and the of former African Rally David Horsey directly him.

Steve commented: might have been but that definitely did not make it Wildlife, rivers, thick and tricky navigation were all on the today. The car did well, the co-driver did and the driver, possibly, deserves a pat on the as well!

Kick Energy Amigos Geoff Bell/Tim Challen and Siddall/Carl Williamson lie in eighth and place respectively as the battle for honours continues.

There are two days left of this event and ahead of them, the still face almost 900 of varied African roads the finish, back on the East of Africa.
