Jamie Whyte last week lost to his brother Shaun in the Transearth Rally that was held in Ruwa as after his Subaru Impreza was unfortunate to roll out of the race while he was taking the lead. The misfortune gave his brother his maiden victory.
“Its always good to win, I experienced a bit of problems with my car during the race, but it went perfectly,” said Shaun Whyte. It is my maiden victory and Im so happy about it. For me beating some of the seasoned drivers was good, it was a brilliant race with a new rally route.
