Tuthill Porsche are returning to Kenya this year to compete in the 2021 East African Safari Classic Rally, and this year they’re bringing Ken Block along for the ride. Dubbed as the world’s most challenging historic motor sports event, the route through Kenya’s Northern Territory is 5,000 kilometers (3,107 miles) is grueling 9 day event.
Tuthill Porsche has seen much success in Africa, winning the rally 4 times already. Not only that, Tuthill’s wins come with some serious driving talent behind the wheel, including world champions Björn Waldegård and Stig Blomqvist. But Block isn’t intimidated by that record. “This will be a wild year!” said Ken. “The opportunity to do things like the Safari Rally with Tuthill Porsche is huge. I can’t wait to push myself to the absolute limit, across some of the gnarliest terrain, in an air-cooled 911 prepared by the best in the business.”
While Block has experience in Subarus and Fords rallying, the Safari 911 should be easy for him to sort out. “Ken’s proven skills and depth of experience will make him a serious contender in Kenya, and his boundless enthusiasm for all things rallying will enthrall the Safari Classic’s devoted audience,” said Richard Tuthill.
The 2021 East African Safari Classic Rally takes place November 1 through November 9, 2021. More information about the rally can be found here.
