  • Description

    Joginder Singh and David Doig of Kenya took the lead in a works Lancer 1600 after Saturday's (17 April) treacherous 550-mile (875 km) second leg of the Safari Rally.

    They had a total of 32 penalty points after the difficult mountain section and Singh, the winner in 1965 and 1974, looks well placed to become the first driver to score three Safari victories.

    Another Kenyan crew, Sheckhar Mehta and Mike Doughty who led earlier in the day, dropped to eighth place after their Datsun 710 was involved in a crash with a landrover. Both escaped without injury.

    It was one of half a dozen crashes which reduced the original 65 entries to 23.

    The Opel Kadett of West German Walter Rohrl and Cleas Billstam of Sweden was wrecked in a crash involving a non-rally car. Again, no-one was injured.

    In second place on 60 penalty points is the Datsun 710 driven by Kenyan Howard Lawrence-Brown and Britain's Derek Pavely.

    Third on 73 points -- a Lancer 1600 driven by another Kenyan, Chris Bates, with the Datsun of West German Bernd Ender and Kenyan Robert Collinger fourth on 74.
