By zooming off first, Bengi is expected to sweep the obstacles off the road for the rest of the party.He will be followed by defending champion Carl “Flash” Tundo, in a Mitsubishi Evo X and ‘Flying Singh’ Baldev Chager and reigning African Champion Manvir Baryan who recently won the season-opening ARC Rallye Bandama of Ivory Coast. Manvir is making a comeback after skipping the KCB Nakuru Rally.Tejveer Rai, co-driven by Zahir Shah in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X R4 machine, lines up fifth.Meanwhile, Bengi has completed his pre-event performance test aboard the Group N Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10 he will pilot this weekend.The former Two Wheel Drive champion will savor his second outing in the.ex-Farhaaz Khan Evolution following his retirement in Nakuru.“The test run was very good but we have a few loose ends to deal with before the rally. All in all, I’m glad we’re now getting the hang of the car and feeling excited and optimistic in the run up to Kajiado. This year we are running in the elite Premier Class meaning we shall drive sensibly fast and prepare meticulously,” Bengi said.Eric Bengi during the test drive in Stoni AthiBengi was accompanied by his lady co-driver Tuta Mionki who exuded confidence after testing.“The test went well. We are still learning and adjusting to the new car and hopefully after a few events we shall be done with teething problems,” Tuta who is the Motorsport Personality of the Year 2018 said.“We realized the car needs a lot of training to handle. It’s actually very different from our old Subaru and has much better control but needs seat time. It’s an interesting drive and I think it fits my driving style better we will perform well,” Bengi explained.“Despite exiting Nakuru, we still feel we can definitely do better in the Evo than the Sub. Our plan is to take baby steps and learn how to handle her then push for a podium. We had had a good CS1 in Nakuru despite almost coming to a complete stop; caught up in dust in the very dusty section,” he stated.We recorded the 4th fastest time on CS 1. The car sits very well and is very quick out of the corners. We now look forward to the upcoming events but we will need a couple of practice rounds to help us understand the car better,” he added.Eric Bengi during the test drive in Stoni AthiBengi and Tuta are sponsored by Menengai Oil Refineries through their flagship “Menengai Cream” brand.Scrutineering and reconnaissance (recce) will take place on Saturday, March 2 at the KMSC Clubhouse in Nairobi’s South C and the route course respectively.Cars will then be flagged off from Kajaido KCB Branch on Sunday March 3 with the finish programmed for Lisa Ranch, Konza on the same day.Onkar Rai, who delivered an unprecedented hat-trick of wins on Nakuru Rally, leads the KNRC log with 25 points followed by defending KNRC Champion Carl “Flash” Tundo on 21 and former Champion Baldev Chager third on 18.KNRC TABLE AFTER ROUND 1-NAKURU KNRC DIVISION 1 DRIVERS1 Mahesh Halai 252 Sohanjeet Puee 213 Amaar Haq 184 Karan Patel 15KNRC DIVISION 1 CO-DRIVER1 Ketan Halai 252 Adnan Din 213 Victor Okundi 184 James Mwangi 15KNRC DIVISION 2 DRIVERS1 Issa Amwari 25KNRC DIVISION 2 CO-DRIVERS1 Mwangi Waithaka 25KNRC GROUP N CHAMPIONSHIP DRIVERS 1 Mahesh Halai 252 Ammar Haq 21KNRC GROUP N CO-DRIVERS1 Ketan Halai 252 Victor Okundi 21KNRC OVERALL DRIVERS1 Onkar Rai 252 Carl Tundo 213 Baldev Chager 184 Tejveer Rai 155 Mahesh Halai 126 Sohanjeet Puee 107 Ammar Haq 88 Issa Amwari 69 Karan Patel 4KNRC OVERALL CO-DRIVERS1 Gavin Laurence 252 Tim Jessop 213 Ravi Soni 184 Zahir Shah 155 Ketan Halai 126 Adnan Din 107 Victor Okundi 88 Mwangi Waithaka 69 James Mwangi 40Shares0000(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eric Bengi during the test drive in Stoni AthiNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 28 – Premier class driver Eric Bengi driving a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X will zoom off first as the battle for the KCB Kenya National Rally Championship title returns to Kajiado County this weekend.More than 25 drivers will line up for the challenge in Sunday’s KCB Kajiado Rally which will start in Kajiado and conclude at the expansive Lisa Ranch in Konza.

PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, July 17- Boniface Oluoch pulled a man of the match performance, making crucial saves as Kenyan Premier League defending champions Gor Mahia settled for a goalless draw against Ushuru at Nyayo Stadium on Sunday.The record 15-time league champions failed to take advantage of league leaders Tusker FC’s slip to close down the gap after the Brewers were held to a 2-2 draw at home against Chemelil in the early kick off. Oluoch was the busiest of the two keepers in the opening half and he solely kept Gor in the game at a time when Luke Ochieng had one of the games to forget in his career.The former KCB man had been called up to replace the absent Harun Shakava partnering Musa Mohammed at the heart of defense, but the pace of the Ushuru forward men proved too much for him to handle most of the time.In the 17th minute, former AFC Leopards forward Lamin Dialo, who has already scored against Gor Mahia this season, powered through the right past Ochieng but the final decision to try and dink the ball over Oluoch from a tight angle failed to tick when he had better options begging for the ball inside the six yard box.A minute later, Oluoch was called into his first save of the match, going down well to keep out a shot from Kennedy Oduor inside the box after Eric Mata had won the ball and fed the midfielder.Ushuru-midfielder-Maurice-Odipo-muscles-Gor-Mahias-george-Blackberry-odhiambo-off-the-ball.PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaDialo won another contest with Ochieng in the 20th minute, this time showing sheer strength to muscle the defender off the ball, dink a bit to his right past Musa Mohammed but Oluoch pulled off a full stretched save to keep out his low shot.Gor had struggled to make out anything moving upfront and Ushuru’s defensive display managed to keep out the deadly attacking duo of Meddie Kagere and Jacques Tuyisenge.Kagere though managed to sneak into the near post from an Amos Nondi corner, but his header under pressure from Jackson Onjala went wide.Tuyisenge was put through by George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo with a superb through ball in the 33rd minute, but the Ushuru defense managed to close him down quick enough before he had the ball on his feet, forcing him to set up Nondi.The youngster though saw his goal bound effort blocked by the defense though keeper Shabaan Odhoji had it covered.Ushuru would have ended the half on a high but Aziz Okaka wasted a glorious opportunity after shooting straight at Oluoch with the keeper down having had a soft palm on a Rogers Ochieng cross, the ball landing on Okaka.Ushuru-FC-midfielder-Maurice-Odipo-vies-for-the-ball-with-Gor-Mahias-Francis-Kahata. PHOTO/Raymond Makhaya.At the start of the second period, Gor coach brought on Baron Oketch for the injured ‘Blackberry’ while Ken Kenyatta responded by offloading Eric Mata for Liberian Rosevelt Blaty.Ushuru picked up with the same tempo they had in the opening 45 minutes and Oluoch once again thwarted their efforts in the 56th minute with a superb save off Diallo.Ushuru had launched a quick counter attack with Philemon Otieno picking out Diallo who broke into the box, but Oluoch managed to narrow down the angle and spread his body nicely to prevent the ball from going into the back of the net.The absence of Khalid Aucho who left the club in June for trials in Scotland was visible as the defending champions lacked their usual flair and free flowing transition from defense to attack.In the final 15 minutes, Gor upped the ante, throwing pressure into the Ushuru half and forcing them to play on the back foot.An intended cross which turned out to be a shot on target almost caught Odhoji off guard, but the custodian managed to backtrack and tip the ball onto the crossbar.Wafula picked up the loose ball and his intended cross was almost turned into an own goal by Ngaira, but lucky for him the ball flew wide.Gor would have snatched it late though but Odhoji pulled off a superb one on one save to deny Kagere after the Rwandese striker dinked past his markers inside the box.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)
1 The defeat is Arsenal’s first in 19 games in all competitions Arsene Wenger defended his decision to make 10 changes after Arsenal were defeated 2-0 by Southampton in the EFL Cup quarter-finals.Gunners midfielder Mohamed Elneny was the only survivor from Sunday’s Premier League win over Bournemouth and even with Granit Xhaka and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain coming off the bench, Wenger’s men never looked close to getting on the scoresheet.The defeat is Arsenal’s first in 19 games in all competitions, but Wenger says the only thing he would change is the result of the match.He said: “I regret that we lost the game. We had played well until now.“If you look at the players who played well tonight, some of those who did not play tonight were on the edge.“In midfield we had Coquelin, Ramsey, Elneny, Xhaka, Perez… Giroud was injured. We had Iwobi, one of the regular players in the first team.“The problem wasn’t there. We had players who are used to top-level competition. But we didn’t have the right urgency.He added: “I’m disappointed. We had a disappointing performance, particularly in the first half.“I think we were not good enough defensively and gave cheap goals away in the first half.“It was better in the second, but it was one of those nights where you look like you could play two hours without scoring a goal.“We didn’t have enough urgency in the first half and were weak in some departments. We paid for that. We were not incisive enough in the first half especially.“They played deeper in the second half and were sharper than us and fitter. If you give someone a handicap of two goals, against a Premier League side it’s difficult.”Southampton are through to their first League Cup semi-final since 1987, when they were beaten over two legs by Liverpool, the same team they face in this year’s semi-finals.Manager Claude Puel was happy with how his team performed. “It was a great performance because this game was a different profile,” he said.“We were clinical in the first half, with two goals from two chances. I like this.“After, in the second half, we had many chances to score another goal and make the game safe against a good team.“It was a fantastic game to achieve that result: good solidarity, good attitude. I enjoyed what my players did.“We have a chance to play a semi-final, home and away, in the second half of the season. That was the objective.“(There are some) very important games in the future.”

It will be held at the Santa Clarita United Methodist Church, 26640 Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus. AAUW was founded in Boston in 1881 when a group of 17 female college graduates met to discuss what they could do with their college degrees. At that time, society didn’t appreciate the educational achievements of women. In the 1880s, a Harvard doctor claimed higher education jeopardized women’s health. Some people believed him until AAUW research proved him wrong.
