Sharing with you the Enashipai Experience under "Events"

The World Championship Winning Škoda Fabia R5

  TECHNICAL INFORMATION:   Base Car:        ŠKODA FABIA III Length:            3,994 mm Max. width:     1,820 mm Min. weight:    1,230 kg Bodyshell:       Modified for 4x4 drivetrain                         Safety roll-cage   ENGINE:         Turbocharged 4-cylinder:       1,620 cm3 Direct injection            Max. power:                            210 kW Max. torque:                            420 Nm   From a mass-produced engine to a racing one:   The mass-produced engine, from which the racing engine of the ŠKODA FABIA R5 is derived, was originally introduced in the Volkswagen Lamando and ŠKODA Superb cars for the Chinese market.   The engine in the rally car is different in the following ways:   ·       Due to the reduction from 1.8 l to 1.6 l, there is a completely new crank mechanism, specially developed for rally conditions ·       The valve distribution and cylinder replacement system has been completely redesigned in order to ensure ideal conditions for replacement and cylinder filling ·       The fuel system (high-pressure pump and injection nozzles) was also adjusted ·       The racing engine is equipped with a modified turbocharger from the Audi S3 to ensure the necessary supply of air ·       Due to the new engine position in the car, the oil system and the engine ventilation system have been completely redesigned and optimized   Such an engine in rallying must be reliably controlled and therefore a special engine control system has been developed to provide, in addition to performance parameters, reliability in case of the failure of some electrical components.     Everything has limitations and rules:   The engine must,  of course, comply with all FIA regulations for the R5 category and also with the special rules given by national associations in the countries where the ŠKODA FABIA R5 competes. The power of the engine is limited by FIA rules, which means there is a prescribed maximum operating pressure of 1.5bars or a 32mm diameter restrictor. For a considerable number of parts used in the engine, there are price limits or a requirement that parts must come from a mass-produced car.   CHASSIS:   Both axles have a McPherson suspension designed for extreme conditions that cannot occur in regular traffic. On jumps, the force on every wheel equals multiple the weight of the car.   A pure rally car without electronic assistance:   The ŠKODA FABIA R5 does not have any auxiliary electronics for driving. Of all possible sensors, the car only has the sensors required for engine control and sensors for brake pressure, steering wheel position or fuel level – but these are not related to the engine control and are to provide information only.   WHAT FUEL ŠKODA FABIA R5 USES:   Special Fuel Tank: Volume 82.5 l Consumption: 0.6 l/km of a special stage   To store fuel, the car has a special fuel tank according to the FIA regulations. It is made of Kevlar fabric and puncture-resistant rubber. The tank is filled with a special foam to prevent the spilling of gasoline. From the bottom, the tank is protected by a glass-kevlar fibre cover and an absorbent layer. The cover has a minimum thickness of 10 mm according to FIA regulations.   The FABIA R5's tank is filled thanks to a pair of quick couplings located directly on the top of the tank.   RIMS AND TYRES:     Tarmac: 8‘x18‘ – min. weight 8.9 kg Gravel: 7‘x15‘ – min. weight 8.6 kg   For tarmac WRC events, competitors are currently allowed to use three tyre compounds, differing in their hardness and suitability for different types of asphalt or atmospheric conditions (including rain).   For gravel WRC events, competitors are allowed just two compounds (soft and hard). Extreme and challenging rally conditions can be very hard on tyres, but nevertheless, the number of tyres teams can use during a rally is limited and is set by the rally organizer according to the length of the event – usually, it is around 28 pairs for the whole rally.   Join us in cheering on Aakif Virani in this year’s WRC Safari Rally Kenya, via our social media handles, from 23rd - 26th June 2022.    #EnashipaiWRCFun

Tetu Shani @ Valentine's Fine Dining

If you thought the wine pairing and fine dining experience at Enashipai this Valentine's was all we had to offer, then think again!  One of East Africa's most exciting acts will be there to grace the Valentine's fine dining experience on 14th February - the one and only Tetu Shani. Here is a little bit more about him...   Tetu Shani Singer/Songwriter Okayafrica– “One of East Africa’s most exciting live acts.” Business Daily– “One of the most exciting performers at the forefront of the burgeoning movement in the Nairobi live scene”Music in Africa– “His songs defy category and his crystal-clear vocals and poetic lyrics imbue his songs with a sentimental quality.” A Self-taught percussionist and guitarist, Tetu Shani got accepted in 2014 to the prestigious Berklee College of Music with a scholarship to study Performance. He, however, turned it down desiring to be a part of the musical renaissance happening in Nairobi and to help build up the local music scene. He picked up a guitar that same year, writing his first song at the relatively late age of 28. In the next four years, he had won a silver medal at the Global Music Awards, opened for Grammy winner Joss Stone and been featured on CNN African Voices as one of the trendsetters on the African continent. He describes his sound as Afro Pop-Rock, which is a blend of indie rock, Afro-pop and folk music from Kenya and has become a performing artist known for his versatility, storytelling and dynamic range leading to live performances in Nairobi, Ethiopia, and Uganda as well as a tour in Zanzibar * *Nyege Nyege Festival in Jinja 2016*Blankets and Wine Festival in Nairobi 2017*Koroga Festival in Nairobi 2018
