The race at the redesigned Uganda motorcross racing circuit at Garuga on Sunday will have top finishers get slots on the national team.
National team captain Arthur Blick said that top six riders in each category will join the squad the will take on Kenya in the first leg of the East African motorcross championship next month.
The event has competitors in the open class, 125.c.c, 85 c.c, 65c.c and 50c.c categories. Uganda will host the first leg at Garuga.
The race jointly organised by Speedway and Uganda Motorcross Club has so far attracted 40 riders, 10 more than in the previous round.
â€œThereâ€™s more interest now because of the redesigned track and good organisation. We are particularly encouraging children to join the sport and the response is good,â€ Blick remarked.
The event will have former national champion Arthur Blick, USPA motorcyclist of the year Natan Assaf and Orland Barrack renew rivals in an anticipated open thriller.
The race will be spiced with a boda boda race whose winner will return home with a new motorcycle.
