Jasmeet Singh Chana aka 'Iceman' says his sensational performance in the season so far, has inspired him ahead of Mombasa Rally this weekend.
The Kenya National Rally Championship (KNRC) leader admitted that his victory in the high-altitude Eldoret round also boosted his chances for a maiden KNRC title.
Jasmeet currently enjoys a 67-point advantage on the KNRC log over McRae Kimathi (79) while rally youngster Jeremiah Wahome sits third with 54 cumulative points.
Jasmeet now heads to round six in Mombasa with a definite spring in his step. He revealed that his victory in Eldoret boosted his confidence ahead of the season’s only sea-level event which will be hosted at Mombasa Cement in Vipingo.
“The pressure on my competitors, not us. The essence is to make sure we are at the podium and gaining more points,” said Jasmeet,
He said previous Mombasa rounds have been fun for him and he has a feeling this year’s event will be fine too.
“If the stages in Mombasa are good, we will attack for sure. Only recce can tell us what to expect but in our mind, we’ll always play safe. I hear there are night stages in Mombasa which are really exciting.”
“Having not won a championship and being the leader is somewhat scary because you don’t know what will happen. That’s why we threw caution to the wind to make sure the car is in good nick.”
Jasmeet continued: “Immediately after Eldoret, the car was stripped down and was put back together. We are trying to keep it in good shape. The win in Eldoret was important for our campaign. Going forward, it's very important to finish every event in the top position.”]
