To our surprise, Morogoro hosted a rally car race.
Curious indeed, we read the posters that were up months in advance, and come race day we were pleasantly surprised to be able to see cars racing through our local streets, up into the mountains, and back across speed bumps and all. What was interesting was to watch the cars on their time trials, and while they had clear roads at the beginning as they left town, the return trip housed roads peppered with cars and buses, which the drivers then dodged as they raced for the best time. Another fun moment came when a car rushed down the first stretch, hit and held the first turn at full speed, and then abruptly turned left into a gas station and came to a halt to, well, fill up with gas. Too funny. As far as we know, no spectators were crushed or trampled, but they only narrowly escaped a few times!
