The first ever FIA World Rally Champion, Bjorn Waldergard, has entered the 2007 East African Safari Classic Rally in a Ford Escort Mark 1 prepared and run by Historic Motorsport under Team manager David Sutton.
The Swede has won four Former Safari Rally's and was World Champion in 1979.
Waldergard said he has always enjoyed the Safari.
Following the last two classic events held in 2003 and 2005, the 2007 edition will follow a similar format and cover 4300km in Kenya and Tanzania.
The format of the rally will be four days of competition with a rest day in the famous Amboseli National Park in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro and followed by another four days of competition to finish on the sandy beaches in the north of Mombasa.
