Kenya Motor Sport Federation chairman Phineas Kimathi has been appointed as a Representative of Organisers in the powerful Federation Internationale de I’Automobile (FIA) World Rally Championship Commission. Kimathi, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of the WRC Safari Rally Project, is in Geneva where he accepted his appointment. The World Rally Championship Commission brings together important personalities in the sport. The FIA sent Michelle Mouton to come and inspect the proposed Safari Rally route and ensure safety standards are adhered to. The Safari exited the world championship in 2002 but Kimathi and a team of dedicated experts have been driving the Safari Rally agenda.
