Baldev Chager maintained his lead Saturday with  7:41:16.9 on Day 3 of the ongoing East African Safari Classic Rally (EASCR) in Nanyuki. 

“The race was completely different today. The first stage at Moguni to Il Polei was extremely challenging. The weather has really taken a toll on the roads. The wash aways was tricky so we had to be super cautious,” said Chager.

Patrik Sandell of Sweden retained his second place with 7:42:25.4.

Ian Duncan (7:47:38.8) took third place after edging out America’s Ken Block (7:53:09.6) who dropped to fifth place.

Defending champion Kris Rosenberger (7:54:37.3) of Austria took sixth place.

“I still believe the event is so successful for me despite getting two punctures today,” said Block who is also on a Porsche 911 same as Chager, Sandell and Rosenberger.

“I think everything is going according to the plan we had before the rally,” Sandell said.

“We are not making any mistakes. We are taking it steady in the rough paths because there’s a lot of rough paths and then go a bit quicker when it’s possible,” he said.

Day 4 of the rally Sunday will see the drivers head to the Amboseli covering  677km.
