missed out on a debut win for the new RAZR MT tyres,
recently launched into Kenya, when Geoff Mayes, at
the wheel of a powerful Tomcat V8 was forced out of
the SPV lead during KCB Kajiado Rally, reports
Mayes, co-driven by lady
navigator Suzanne Zwager, had powered into an early
SPV lead and had his sights set on a top 10 overall
position when the tight and twisty nature of the
50km long Lisa Farm Stage caused the powerful V8 to
start to overheat, a problem many drivers
Although the crew managed to nurse the car back
to service they were time barred by a mere three
minutes and were not able to continue.
Geoff noted: "We had a lot of fun and have proved
that the car is really competitive, although we
nearly rolled it on one stage!
"The overheating is an issue that was unique to
that stage and those conditions and we are confident
that we won’t struggle again."
Mayes and Zwager, managers of the five start Chui
Safari Lodge in Naivasha, now turn their attention
to the opening Rally raid of the season, the Amiran
Simba Raid, which will take place in Naivasha this
