What has West Kerry and Kenya got in common

The Slea Head stage has An Fear Marbh,  or the sleeping giant – Kenya has Sleeping Warrior.

The West Kerry version gets its name as the rocky island off the coast of Ireland’s most westerly rally stage resembles a dead or sleeping man.

The Kenyan version has a similar story.

A stage on last weekend’s Safari Rally was run in the shadow of a hill that resembles a sleeping Maasai warrior.

The special stage crisscrossed natural plains before a rocky finish. The test wound its way through the challenging rockery – Skirting the Sleeping Warrior Hill through acres of acacias and cattle grazing fields around the numerous hills.
