An agreement has been concluded by Total Kenya Limited to provide the giant car inspection ramp for the Alfa Romeo Owners Club to use for checking the underside of the 70 cars contesting the 2019 CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance which is the classiest event on the Kenya Motor Sport calendar. The Concours will be the 49th in the annual series organised by the Club and will be held at the Nairobi Racecourse on September 29th.
In addition Total will provide 40 environment mats for placing under the motorcycles which are judged in the Nairobi Racecourse parade ring. These will protect the ground used for assessing the motorcycles from the risk of pollution by oil spills.
After approving the agreement Francois-Xavier Ruenes, the Commercial Manager – Retail and Lubricants of Total Kenya said, “We are pleased to help ensure the continuity of the Concours d’Elegance as an Africa continental status event for cars and motorcycles which has been recognised and sanctioned by FIM AFRICA since 2006.”
Shailesh Chandaria, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club treasurer who is in charge of the car judging line, stated, “ We are grateful for the use of the Total Excellium ramp which is key for the officials marking the underside of cars and meets the requirements for an international event.”
He added, “ The ramp enables the judges to carry out a thorough examination for cleanliness, the exhaust system and looking for oil and water leaks. In addition it gives spectators an excellent view of each of the cars contesting the 12 classes making up the day’s programme.”
