An emotional Karan remarked: “It’s such a great feeling winning the personality award after a great season of motorsport. It hasn’t sunk in yet. We will continue aiming higher and hopefully win the elusive African title.”
The night celebrated not just the National champions in their respective categories but also the extraordinary people who make the sport what it is.

Jasmeet Chana and his brother Ravi Chana were feted for winning the Group N Championship in their career-best season in which they wrapped up the KNRC overall class in a credible second overall position.
KMSF President Phineas Kimathi who is also the WRC Safari CEO, said: “It is an honour that this 2022 edition was a truly successful season in which the Safari was voted the most followed WRC event on the FIA global series. Tonight(Saturday), we honour the stars of our sport – our National Champions, and I would also like to thank all the sponsors and teams who provide such strong support.”

Umang said, “It’s not every year you have the opportunity to win titles, so I’m overly excited and happy I have managed to win the main tarmac 4WD championship for the second year running.”
The FIA Awards category saw Hamza Anwar being feted for his maiden ARC Junior Championship title as well as Rio Smith/Riyaz Ismail (ARC4) and McRae Kimathi/Mwangi Kioni (ARC3).
