After the loss of the Safari Rally from the World Rally Championship in 2002, rally enthusiasts got together to recreate the nostalgia of “The Safari”. The idea of this rally: allow classic cars built before 1974, and to avoid the powerful turbo charged and 4WD drive cars. Held every two years, the next East African Safari Rally happens in 2015.
17 classic Porsche 911 rally cars. A team of 120 people. 1.5 years of preparation and 5000 kilometres in 9 days over Africa’s toughest terrain. Follow the Tuthill Porsche team as they take on this extraordinary challenge: the ultimate test of man and machine
