The second event in the Automobile Association of Tanzania, AAT, is expected to be flagged off in Moshi on April 7 and end the very subsequent day.
The AAT’s chief executive officer, Yusuf Ghor, said the event would be two legged bit not exceeding 500 kilometres.
Ghor says some drivers in northern Tanzania are gearing up to compete in the event and already two others from Dar es Salaam are busy in preparations.
The Pandya team of drivers Kirit and his son Dharam has confirmed to be in preparations for the Moshi rally.
The duo have been inspired by superb performance during the seasonal opener held in Dar es Salaam last month when Dharam powered his engine to the podium finish to beat his father to the third spot in the final standings.
The Pandya duo excelled during the previous season to win the overall best performance mush to the amazement of motor sport fans across the nation.
Kirit will be navigated by Tanga Motor Sports Club’s leading navigator Awadh Bafadhil while Dharam still sticks to his uncle Sanjeev.
The highly experienced Bafadhil played a crucial role in Kirit’s build up towards the national championship title during the previous season. Bafadhil used to navigate Issa Mohamed who is on the long lay off for three back to back seasons now.
The line-up of drivers from Moshi and Arusha was not available but Ghor said the event would attract most of them owing to proximity and cost of preparations.
Arusha Motor Sports Club driver Eric Cormac, who finished runners up to the previous event, is likely to compete in Moshi.
Cormac is trailing Dharam by twenty points in the race towards the national championship with six legs remaining to be held for the season.
The AAT has lined-up a total of seven events including the African Championship to be staged in September under strong support from Kobil petroleum products marketing firm.
