Duncan Mubiru aka Kikankane displayed a wonderful show as he won the SMC Bwera in Masaka and Sembabule. This brought his long hunt for a decent rally finish to an end when he secured a win in the fifth round of the National Rally Championship in Masaka over the weekend.
He entered on the second day, Sunday, in the second position behind the BAR ambassador Ronald Ssebugizi and powered his Ford Fiesta R5 to victory in Sembabule.
He did this as he fought off stiff competition from Ponsiano Lwakataka and Sebuguzi who finished second and third respectively.
Navigated by Musa Nsubuga in a Ford Fiesta, Mubiru posted a total time loss of one hour,6.29 minutes, and 36 microseconds.
Regardless of the victory, Mubiru and Nsubuga remain far from defending their title. The crew has only managed to collect 110 points this season.
Ronald Sebuguzi is also in a party mood after clinching the long-awaited rally finish this year in five attempts. Lwakataka finished third to extend his lead to 332 points on the NRC leaderboard. The next round of the National Rally Championship is scheduled for September 9-11.
In the 2WD category, Ibrahim Lubega beat rival Oscar Ntambi to close the gap in the standings. A total of 15 cars out of the 31 finished the two-day event.
