ROBINSON KUNDA, Lusaka
JASSY Singh has vowed to beat rampaging Kenyan driver Jassi Chatthe in next weekend’s Tanzania International Rally.
Jassy finished second to Chatthe during last weekend’s Automotive Equipment Zambia International Rally to remain in contention for the Africa Rally Champion (ARC) title.
Chatthe is leading the ARC standings with 50 points with Jassy in second position on 38 while Muna junior is third with 30 points.
In an interview in Lusaka, Jassy said he has worked out a strategy to stop the rampaging Chatthe from dominating the ARC circuit.
Chatthe, who also beat Jassy in the Sasol South Africa international Rally last month, won the Automotive Equipment Rally with a timing of 2:40:13 hours while clocked 2:43:27 hours.
“It’s either my brother Muna junior wins in Tanzania or me. We have worked out a strategy to stop Chatthe. As you know, we are competing against him in the ARC, so we will be aiming to beat him in Tanzania,” Jassy said.
He, however, admitted that Chatthe is a tough driver.
But Chatthe is also aiming for a third consecutive top finish in Tanzania.
“Jassy and Muna are good drivers. I think they have shown it in the South African and Zambian International rallies but I will be looking for another win in Dar es Salaam.
“It’s going to be a tough race,” he said.
The Tanzania Rally is the third round on the ARC circuit
