Akure and Ilara-Mokin in Ondo State are set to host the second edition of the Work and Play Rally on November 10 and 11 as organisers state N2m prize for participants.
Chief Executive Officer of Work and Play, Kome Brown, stated that the event would be an improvement from the maiden edition in Sagamu, Ogun State, earlier in the year.
“Work and Play is designed as a breather for the working class, where auto rally is the key activity” Kome said.
“After the inaugural edition, we have raised the standard of the event, including the total purse for our winners and the overall outlook of the event,” she added.
According to Kome, the two-day race would bring people from the corporate world together to network and relax as well as serve as a platform to develop and support the auto racing industry in the country.
The Off-Road race will open the event where 4X4 and Sports Utility Vehicles will participate. Chairman of Elizade, Chief Michael Ade-Ojo, is expected to begin the race in Ilara Imokin.
The road race is however scheduled for midday in Akure by Obafemi Awolowo Way in Akure through Alfred Rewane Road, while the Bike race involving locals would take place later in the day.
Side attractions that include drifting and car stunts will be witnessed with over 100 participants expected at the Akure edition of the Auto Rally.
