First victory for the Polo GTI R5 in Africa

Onkar Rai wins the Meru Rally

Onkar Rai/Gavin Lawrence (EAK/EAK) claimed the first victory for the Polo GTI R5 on the African continent. Consistently fast times allowed them to take the lead on stage three of the Meru Rally, which took place around Mount Kenya in Meru County to the north of Nairobi. Once they had the lead, they were not to be denied the win. Rai/Lawrence won two of the nine special stages. The Polo GTI R5 has now not only won a rally in Africa, but the car’s 65 triumphs include victories in the Arctic Circle, South America and Europe.
