On 1st August 2015 the Zambia Motorsport Association held its first Motorsport Rally in Ndola in over 20 years. Autoworld hosted and sponsored the scrutineering of the Gomes Nsobe Safari Rally.
This exciting Gomes Nsobe Safari Rally event began at noon at the Autoworld workshop and fitment centre in Ndola. All participating cars were carefully scrutinised for safety and road worthiness. Once the last of the 26 cars had been checked, the event moved to Ndola Motor Cross along the Ndola - Kitwe dual carriageway for the official start at 15.00 hours. The finishing line was Nsobe Game Camp off the Ndola – Kapiri Mposhi road.
Autoworld would like to congratulate the team of Farook Ticklay and Jasmeen Singh for scooping 1st position in the 2015 Gomes Nsobe Safari Rally. They were closely followed by the teams of Muna Singh Jr, Leeroy Gomes, Vyon Pinto, Toofail Dalal, Kumaren Naidu, Azim Ticklay, Mujo Simakoloyi, Yazdaan Ticklay, Wellington Matimba and Kleevan Gomes, who all put up a spirited fight and crossed the finish line.
The Gomes Nsobe Safari Rally team prize went to Ticklay Motorsport Team. Mohammed Essa and Farook Ticklay won first and second ‘power stages’ respectively.
The next Zambia Motorsport Association rally is the 6th National Rally Championship, commonly known as the Monze Rally. It will be held on 12th - 13th September 2015 in Monze, Southern Province.
