The Forecast: 2022 Safari Rally Kenya

The second iteration of the ‘reborn’ Safari Rally Kenya gets underway this weekend, and while we know more about what to expect, the sheer unpredictability of the African round will have us glued to our screens.

Kalle Rovanpera again leads the title race as we head to round six of the series, and his whopping 55 point lead has him in a great position for the title.

He's a short priced favourite for the WRC crown and the series still has more than half of its events remaining.

What we do know about rallying, though, is that anything can happen, and for Safari Rally Kenya, that's almost a given.

Last year it threw the championship on its head when leader, Elfyn Evans, crashed out on day one. That gave Sebastien Ogier a clear advantage in the title race when he marched away to a significant lead.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected throughout the rally weekend, and like they did in 2021, could throw some curveballs.

When and where those thunderstorms could appear might just have a huge bearing on the result of the rally.

Some of our predictions are just like the rally – unprecedented.
