Network Airline Management has transported rally cars from Nairobi that had competed in the WRC Safari Rally Kenya 2022.

The cars and equipment travelled on NAM’s regular Boeing 747 service from Nairobi to Liege, having competed in what is often known as the world’s toughest rally.

The 747 carried several Hyundai and Ford rally cars, tools, spares and support equipment.

Peter Njambi, Manager of Cargo Sales and Customer Service at NAM’s Nairobi office oversaw the departure from Nairobi.

He says, “The cars must have traversed some difficult landscapes as they are largely unrecognisable compared to when they originally flew in from Europe! In total, we moved 34 tonnes of rally cars and accessories, which is 7 tonnes more than last year!”

He adds, “Our teams had to ensure the timings of the cars’ delivery were on point to allow them to be ready for the next rally event in Estonia. We look forward to handling more WRC cars in 2023 and hope the drivers enjoyed their time in Kenya, even if the cars did not!”
