Rajiv Ruparelia and Enock olinga will take part in this year’s UMOSPOC Kabalega Rally this weekend as Motor rally competition will resume this month after a long lull due to the persistent effects of the covid19 pandemic.
This will be a memorable rally to the Rajiv Ruparelia Rally team driver in his VW POLO PROTO car as he won the Clubman Rally Championship (CRC) category championship at the Total Kabalega rally in Hoima 2019, a morale boosting win for someone who had just joined rallying that year.
The UMOSPOC Kabalega Rally will be the fifth round of the extended championship that started in 2020.
The event was launched last week in Mukono and it will take place this weekend of 22-24 October in Hoima district.
The rally will run on one day with three stages repeated to cover a total competitive distance of 158.24km.
“It is going to be a fast event, the roads have recently been graded. Drivers should expect 80percent smooth roads. Things can only change when it rains,” says Jus Mungoma, the Clerk of the Course.
Duncan Mubiru and Musa Nsubuga currently lead the championship with 270 points, 40 clear of second-placed Hassan Alwi.
Fred Busulwa and Omar Mayanja currently occupying the third and fourth positions respectively will be aiming at closing in on the leaders.
Jas Mangat, the winner of the previous event in Kasanda in June will be entering the third event of this season.
