Thierry & Martijn disqualified after event

We acknowledge the decision of the stewards to disqualify our #11 entry (Thierry and Martijn) from Safari Rally Kenya as a breach of article 35.4.2 – access of the stages by car.

Despite the circumstances brought forward by our crew in relation to the uncertainty of road limits at this specific event, we understand and take note of the FIA’s position to take necessary steps to stop the customary practice of participants accessing the roads to enhance their knowledge.

We will work with the FIA to continue to promote safety and equality of crews on the stages.
