And the engine roars blared off the tiny speakers.
He watched highlights of the beloved Safari Rally.
Man and machine battled it out-in the exciting,
The toughest and the most spectacular WRC series,
Where the home-grown, like Tundo, and the visitors shone.
Try as he did, he couldn’t read the racers’ names,
And the duplication of the speed-machines made it even harder.
He couldn’t tell the difference between teammates!
His memory opened up, again, to a distant past encounter.
And he recalled the thrill-awesomeness, of a skilful driver of North.
He smiled; his handling of the land cruiser at night was magical!
Then, on the finals day, he watched the highlights;
And marvelled at the racers’ last stunts and manoeuvres!
How lovely? The car in front was a Toyota. Viva Sebastien Ogier!
