Mcrae won the award after being the first Kenyan to ever enter the FIA Junior WRC Championship and the fourth African driver to ever compete in Junior WRC where he finished fourth in the Junior category in the Rally Sweden.
“The award goes a long way in motivating young and upcoming sports personalities to realise their potential in sport. It also fuels one’s passion to give more to the sport.”
“I now feel motivated ahead of my busy calendar starting with Croatia Rally where I will compete in the Junior WRC, Pearl of Uganda, ARC Equator Rally and round up with the WRC Safari Rally,” McRae, who was flanked by his dad Phineas, a retired Rally driver said.
For being crowned the February winner, Mcrae walked away with a refrigerator from LG.
