Ondo Auto Rally 2017 Highlights

The usually calm city of Akure and the sleepy town of  Ilara Mokin were awoken this weekend as Work and Play Events held its second edition of its rally event this time tagged Ondo Auto Rally 2017 and Motoring Nigeria was there to cover every bit of the successful event.


The event started on Friday 10th November at Elizade University where some of the racers thrilled spectators with drift performances. Saturday 11th November was race day. Racing started with the off-road race at Ilara-Mokin after which the racers proceeded to Akure to race in the road category. Worth of note is that this time, the race started with drivers in the grid position and all racers raced together rather than in a time attack format. There was also fierce bike race for the local bike riders of Akure.

Olumuyiwa Akintola from Rage Motorsport won the off road category while Antonio Sandouk won the rod category with a BMW M6 V10.

The Governor of Ondo State Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu was around to present the prize monies to the winners of the different race categories. There were also performances by Mz Kiss and Vermis.
The event was powered by Dinkkiia limited and Work and Play, sponsored by Meristem, Big Cola, Eterna Oil, SMT/Volvo, Smokin Hills, Elizade Group, JAC and covered by NTA, Channels TV,AutoJosh,, TraveLogue and Motoring Nigeria (we also provided 50 race marshals for the race).
