Asad registered the fastest time in heat two clocking 01:54:55 minutes, maintaining 01:55:00 in heats 2 and 3.
“Thanks to KCB involvement in Autocross am back in full force, the sponsorship has seen over 30 entries today which is a sign of positive things to come, the circuit was excellent and I am excited to have won today,” said an excited Asad.
The list of contenders included legendary Azar Anwar, his brother Asad Anwar, Frank Tundo, Rehan Shah, McRae Kimathi, and Kenneth Nteere.
“It wasn’t a good day for me, I made a mistake on the fiery heat that cost me, and I really had to be cautious in the remaining heats but am glad for the podium,” said Anwar.
