The Kenya Commercial Bank yesterday unveiled a helicopter for the world Rally Championship [WCR] Safari. It will be used to give a ride to the lucky fans dering the event in Naivasha and Nakuru stages.
Over 36 fans will get a chance over the longonot , Soysambu and Hells Gate enabling them to enjoy watching the rally route and cars from the sky.
The KCB Group Acting Marketing, Communication and Citizenship Director Wanyi Mwaura said the bank will offer the fans a chance to enjoy as they ride over the track.
“We are looking at giving rally fans a very different viewing experience,” Ms. Mwaura said. “Our fans have stuck with us over the past 19 years when WRC was absent, we want to return the favour by allowing them to experience the thrill of watching the race from the sky.”
The bank which is a financial partner in the Championship committed a total of Ksh. 100Million as sponsorship towards the rally. This cements the ever support that the bank gives to sporting activities like: rugby, chess, volleyball and football.
“Our sponsorship has sustained motorsports in Kenya over the years, we want to give our pumped-up fans a lively experience,” said Ms. Mwaura. “You can see the race track a lot better and it’s good looking down on it all, rather than looking straight at it.”
