AFRICA Rally Championship Sasol debutant Jassy Singh says the route at the second stage of the African Championship in South Africa is terrifying and daunting.
The Zambian Rally Champion, who is in South Africa taking part in the second round of the FIA African Rally Championship, said all the stages of the rally are scary as they are spotted with huge cliffs on both sides of the road.
He said he was not used to rallying in mountaineous areas which are a common feature in Mpumalanga, where the event is being held.
In an interview, Singh said the 614.33 kilometre rally would not be easy as the two-day rally begins.
"We had a long day going over the five different stages of the rally. We are not used to rallying in the mountains, we are used to our flat farmlands in Zambia. All the stages are pretty scary with big cliffs on the sides," said Singh.
Singh, who is co-driven by veteran Dave Sihoka, is driving a NetOne Technologies powered Subaru Impreza N10. Sihoka partnered with Jassy's father Muna when he won the ARC three times.
The FIA African Rally Championship stages are Bandama Cote D'Ivoire, Sasol South Africa, Zambia International, KCB Safari-Kenya, Pearl of Africa-Uganda, Rwanda Mountain Gorilla and International Madagascar rallies.
