FORMER African Rally champion Mohammed Essa yesterday defied odds to win the 88.95 kilometre Pembe Rally after clocking 00:56:46 minutes.Essa, in his Subaru Impreza N16 and navigated by Farai Mwanamakondo, surpassed Muna Singh Jr after stage four to win his first rally this year after a three-year break off the wheels.
“It was one of the toughest races so far this season. Competition is really getting tough and the guys gave us a good run for our money. We hope to keep up the same spirit for the rest of the season and see how far we can go,” Essa said.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
