East African Safari Classic Rally 2015: Richard Tuthill’s Day 1 video blog

Richard Tuthill, team boss of the Tuthill Porsche rally team is blogging daily from this year’s Kenya Airways East African Safari Classic Rally.

The first day of racing was a tough one for all competitors, with British pair John Lloyd and Adrian Cavenagh rolling their Ford Escort RS 1800 during Stage Two, cracking the oil tank and forcing them to withdraw.

Leading the race at the end of the first day were Alastair Cavenagh and Gavin Laurence, who negotiated some of the worst mud and flooding yet seen in the race, to emerge victorious.
