The crew of Duncan Mubiru aka Kikankane and Musa Nsubuga in a Subaru Impreza N14 attributed Sunday’s Race to Race Sprint victory at Busiika to good concentration and power of their car.

Kikankane beat NRC table leader Ronald Ssebuguzi in both runs posting the fastest time of (09:37:65) on a dusty track sending the mammoth crowd at the event into wild cheers.

“We had enough training prior to the race and we were very focused on top of the strength of the car that didn’t frustrate us,” Kikankane stated.

He added that the win boosted his hope for the NRC title contest and will be all out to slash Ssebuguzi and Jonas Kansiime’s lead in next event that is to be organised by Southern Motor Club next month.

Ssebuguzi’s co-driver Cedric Buzabo conceded defeat and attributed their poor performance to lack of concentration and inadequate preparation.

“We were the organisers of this event and didn’t have enough time to train and concentrate but Kikankane beat us hands down and he was too good,” Buzabo stated.

Ssebuguzi finished 12th while Kansiime finished second and FMU sprint defending champion Shafiq Semujju finished third. Former NRC champion ‘Super Lady’ Suzan Muwonge made a good return to the cock pit finishing fifth while Uganda Telecom-sponsored Peter Kakaire finished sixth overall.

Meanwhile, Ssebuguzi (251 pts) remains on top of the NRC standings, 43 points ahead of second-placed Kansiime (208pts) and 66 points ahead of third-placed Kikankane (185pts).

The event was sponsored by Coca-Cola, uganda telecom, Ambulance Africa, KR Moto Garage, Sema Properties, and Fresh Diary.
