ASSY Singh and his brother Muna Singh junior finished overall ninth and 16th during the Sasol rally but second and third on the FIA 2015 Africa Rally Championship (ARC) driver’s chart after the second leg.
South Africa’s Mark Cronje, who is not taking part in the 2015 ARC, won the Sasol rally which he dominated from first to finish after timing two hours 26 minutes and 12 seconds ahead of Leeroy Poulter, who was three minutes 43 seconds behind.
Kenyan Jaspreet Chatte was seventh overall but won the ARC drivers category to pick up the 25 points after the gruesome 580km rally to be on par with Ivorian and defending champion Gary Chaynes.
Chatthe, driving his Mitsubishi EvoX, clocked two hours 50 minutes and 36 seconds with Jassy just three minutes and 9.7 seconds slower than the Kenya while Muna was 17 minutes 22.1 seconds slower to finish overall 16th from the 22 cars that finished the rally.
With Catthe and Chaynes tied on 25 points, Jassy has an opportunity to take over leadership during the Automotive Equipment Zambia International Motor Rally to be held from May 15 to 17 in Lusaka which will be third leg of the ARC.
