The Star (Kenya) - - Sports -

This year’s CBA Africa Con­cours d’Ele­gance has at­tracted a record 28 en­trants from out­side Kenya. The event set for this Sun­day at Nairobi Race­course (9am) will see the for­eign le­gion con­test in the the classi­est event on the Kenya mo­tor­sport cal­en­dar.

The 2016 edi­tion is the 46th in the an­nual se­ries or­gan­ised by the Alfa Romeo Own­ers Club to recog­nise and re­ward the own­ers of well kept cars and mo­tor­cy­cles.

The list for cars closed with the max­i­mum en­try of 70 which is spec­i­fied in the reg­u­la­tions to en­sure high stan­dards of judg­ing and there is a strong mo­tor­cy­cle en­try.

The Vintage Mo­tor­cy­cle Club of South Africa will be rep­re­sented by new­comer Roland Nancekiv­ell with a 1957 NSU Su­per­max and Piet Maas will be rid­ing a 1935 Cot­ton round the judg­ing ring. The team leader Stephen Bakewell has placed his hope for a prize with a 1979 Moto Guzzi.

Les­lie Carvell will be driv­ing her bright crim­son coloured 1970 Volk­swa­gen Bee­tle from Jinja to Nairobi for her third ap­pear­ance in the CBA Africa Con­cours d’Ele­gance. For the past two years she has earned prizes in the up to 1300 cc tour­ing car class and has re­ceived tro­phies for achiev­ing the best re­sults by an en­try from Uganda.
