Chana Brothers to Be Fueled By Jaguar for Rest of Season. Written by Abdul Sidi (Nation)
The Chana Brothers have landed a sponsorship with Jaguar Petroleum for the remaining rounds of the 2020 Kenya National Rally Championship in addition to the entire 2021 season.
The remaining rounds are based on what the KNRC calendar provides due to interruptions visited by the coronavirus pandemic.
Jasmeet Chana, who is regularly navigated by his brother Ravi Chana, will carry the Jaguar Petroleum colors on their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo10 following the latest deal.
The former KNRC 2WD, Division One, Division Two, Division Three, S class Champion and 2019 Group 'N' Champion said he was excited with the deal that will keep his mind definitely focused.
"I am happy and looking forward the new deal. It makes a lot of difference when you know you can drive at 100 percent potential without having to worry about budget constraints.
"Driving will become a lot better when you don't have much stress about monetary issues. You can only go up and faster and can't look behind as long as you drive sensibly. I know how and when to go flat out," said Jasmeet told Nation Sport.
