FORMER national champion Ponsiano Lwakataka is so confident that he believes nobody can beat him in this weekend’s Independence Rally.

“Unless I am dogged by mechanical problems nobody can defeat me in a straight contest. I am clearly a class above the rest who should fight for second position,” Lwakataka bragged.
Lwakataka will be flagged off second to national championship leader Nasser Mutebi.

“If I need to overtake Mutebi in a competitive section to take the national championship I would do it but there’s no point in embarrassing our next national champion,” Lwakataka stated.
Mutebi who leads the championship with 335 points, 60 clear of Lwakataka only needs to finish in the top four to claim the title.

The other would be contenders Ronald Ssebuguzi and Jas Mangat opted out of the title race after the controversial Jinja rally.

The final event of the local championship that has attracted 37 entrants will start with a super special stage at Nyendo in Masaka tomorrow, ahead of the second leg in Lwakataka’s home district of Rakai on Sunday.
