Palpable Sense Of Excitement As E-Sports Come To Kenya

An all-new adventure is on the horizon this week as the eSports WRC Championship presented by Toyota Gazoo Racing heads to the African continent for the first time.

Without a doubt, Sami-Joe will enter the tenth stop on the calendar as the hot favourite.

According to , the Lebanese teenager remains undefeated this season and a victory in Kenya will already confirm his status as regular season MVP.

Sami-Joe is also the only driver to have thus far locked their spot in the Grand Final, with seven tickets remaining up for grabs with a number of drivers still within a realistic chance of a top-eight finish.

Safari Rally Kenya-co-sponsored by KCB Bank Kenya- makes its much-anticipated return to the WRC from 24-27 June but before we get to that, it also makes its just as anticipated debut on the eSports WRC calendar from 18-21 June.

For their maiden African adventure, drivers will be required to tackle two stages: Negma and Ntulele in reverse. Competition is open to all players on WRC 9.
