Nsumba, 11, won the tightly contested first round at the Victoria Raceway Park Garuga that saw both Ssentamu and Aviv Orland crash in the first and second heats respectively.

Meanwhile rally drivers have requested the motorsport governing body (FMU) to allow them entertain the fans that will turn up at Busiika on Easter Sunday as they test their cars for the Kabale rally.

Six drivers Desh Kananura, Arthur Blick Jr., Omar Mayanja, Suzan Muwonge, Ambrose Byona and Duncan Mubiru want to test their cars ahead of the Gorilla in the Mist rally on April 8-10.

"We have requested FMU and they are yet to reply us, but it would be good for our fans and also the drivers who have bought new cars," Blick said.

Byona brought a new Evo 9, Mayanja, Mubiru (Evo X), Kananura bought a new Evo X engine while Blick and Suzan want to test the adjustments made on their engines before the Kabale rally.
