The crew of Ronald Ssebuguzi and Cedric Buzabo want to go a step better and win titles on the regional and continental
level after sealing their third National Rally Championship (NRC).
The team won this year’s crown after similar success in 2009 and 2006 in a Mitsubishi Evo 9.
Besides this year’s NRC title, Ssebuguzi cruised to victory in the Champions Sprint at the Festino Cite Mukono on Boxing Day.
Ssebuguzi posted 6 minutes and 35 seconds beating Godfrey Kiyaga and Ritah Nakigozi in a Subaru N8.
Shafik Ssemujju and Hussein Mukuye in a Subaru N11 finished third.
But Ssemujju was crowned the 2014 Sprint champion with 22 points, one ahead of Ssebuguzi.
The event sponsored by Coca Cola, Big Mike, Kanu Connections and CFAO Uganda was graced by Democratic Party president Norbert Mao who flagged off the race.
Earlier on this season, Ssebuguzi and Buzabo won the MPU, Southern Motor Club and the OiLibya Mt. Elgon races.
Ssebuguzi told New Vision after the victory in Mukono that he now wants to go for regional titles in Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda.
The experienced driver said that his plan is to enter the regional competitions driving a Mitsubishi Evo 10.
Ssebuguzi added that he is also planning to compete in and win the Africa Rally Championship (ARC).
“I am praying that my sponsor helps me get a more powerful machine (Mitsubishi Evo 10) for ARC and regional competitions,” the skilled driver stated.
The Shell V-Power sponsored driver added: “It is time I take on drivers at the continental level because I have won many titles at home.”
The Mukono competition closed this year’s Federation of Motorsport Clubs of Uganda calendar.
Focus is now on ARC title
