Driver // Arthur Odero-Jowi
Jowi first got involved in rallying in 1985 by volunteering to work as a service crew leader for Patrick Njiru who was, at the time, a semi-works Subaru rally driver based in Nairobi, Kenya. In October 1990 Jowi made his debut as a driver driving a 1973 Toyota Corolla TE27 in a divisional rally in Paris, Texas, USA. He contested a few events from 1990 to November 1995 with considerable success. In 1996 and 1997 he did not compete in any rallies.
In 1998 Jowi built a Production GT class Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX and ran some SCCA National Performance Rally events. The year was fairly successful. The team had class wins at the Prescott Forest Rally and the Ramada Express International Rally. Jowi won the inaugural National Performance Rally Rookie of the Year award.
