The Top Fry Rally was held in Kenya from 31st July through to 3rd August. For this competition BMA built three Porsche machines for the Kabras Racing Team. The three drivers performed brilliantly with a victory, a second and a fourth place. “That fourth place could just as well have been a third. Over near on an 800 km special stage Tejveer Rai was a mere 8.1 sec down on claiming a podium place” Bernard Munster commented.



“Two years ago we built three cars for Kabras Racing. The cars remain in Kenya. During the events our people are on hand. The Top Fry Rally is held on the same course as the new World Championship rally that will be there next year. As compared to the Morocco Rally the Top Fry is a far heavier event with longer special stages, the equivalent of a Morocco rally per day, on a highly demanding course.



I’m therefore truly proud with this result. The general public know BMA from the VW Polo and the Skoda Fabia, but a good 50% of our work takes place in historic competitions. As such Johan Gitsels and Jos De Jongh competed in the Peking-Paris rally in June. They each drove a Porsche.


In fact De Jongh was at the wheel of a Targa version, a first. He performed brilliantly and completed the gruelling 14000 km event without experience a single blow out. Matters went less well for Johan Gitsels, who in his enthusiasm during the second day crashed off the road causing some damage to his wrist.



The car was lost, but Johan kept his spirits high. He returned to Belgium to have his wrist operated. Several days later he drove off to Moscow with another Porsche to re-join the event there. He even won a stage but following a complaint the result was scrapped. The regulations clearly stipulate that you may not re-join with a different car.”



BMA and the Kabras Racing Team are going to work more intensively in the future. The Belgian team has just delivered a first VW Polo R5 which will be making its debut this weekend in the Kenyan Championship.
