Dark Continent Datsun

Old pros Jayant Shah and HW “Lofty” Drews ran their Datsun 260Z in the Tanzanite One Arusha Rally recently, which served only as a warmup to the upcoming Kenya Airways East Africa Safari Classic Rally in November. You might remember Drews as one of the original pilots of the famous 240Z rally car who, along with Shekhar Mehta, won the original Safari Rally outright in 1973.

The Safari Classic is a vintage event held in the spirit of the event’s heyday when Datsuns, Mitsubishis and Lancias duked it out in the birthplace of humanity. To enter, your chariot of choice has to be 1974 or older. The dust clouds start billowing on November 25th in Mombasa, Kenya.
