 Lwakataka in action

 
Lwakataka scored 100 points on Sunday to tally 160 points, same as Jas Mangat.
 
The weekend victory has given Lwakataka hope that he can win the National rally championship. 
 
Navigated by Samuel Mugisha in a Subaru N12, Lwakataka posted a total time loss of an hour and 15.16 minutes, as the Shell V-Power sponsored crew of Ronald Ssebuguzi and Leon Ssenyange finished second with a total time loss of an hour and 16.19 minutes.
 
Lwakataka attributed the victory to the new car he acquired from Jas Mangat.
 
“It has been a successful rally for me but I thank Jas Mangat who helped me learn things I did not know about this car,” Lwakataka said, citing a number of launchers on the Subaru N12 that he didn’t know to use.
 
"I'm now hopeful that I can compete and win the National Rally Championship," Lwakataka said.
 
Duncan Mubiru finished third, while Jas Mangat finished fourth, and they all promised a comeback in the next event on the calendar which is the Pearl of Africa Uganda rally.
 
Mubiru attributed to his good performance to his new manager Suzan ‘Super Lady’ Muwonge who dropped out in the second last section but manages him.
