MOSES Lumala and Dipu Ruparelia are the first entrants for this weekendâ€™s Team Blick fundraising sprint at Garuga circuit.
All Ugandaâ€™s top guns are expected for the sprint, that usually acts as a test of machines before competitive events.
The non-championship sprint to raise money for upcoming drivers Arthur Blick and his cousin William Blick will be held alongside the Yamaha Motor cross championship at the same venue. Team Blick is trying to make up for TOTAL sponsorship he lost at the end of last season.
William and former national motorcycle champion Arthur will participate in both the National Motorcycle championship and the sprint.
â€œSeveral other top drivers have promised to support us by participating in the fundraising sprint. We shall also raise funds by giving fans a ride in rally cars at a fee,â€ William said.
William appealed to the rally fraternity to support them in the fundraising.
Arthur, a great entertainer, only made a last minute entry in the Caltex Havoline Energy rally after Tyre World bailed him out with a set of tyres worth Sh1.5m.
The 25-year-old driver making a first appearance in the NRC category finished an impressive fourth.
Lumala, Dipu for sprint
