Bharaj took participants through communication, safety plan, marshaling and event preparations.

In a bid to improve the safety of its calendar events, Federation of Uganda Motorsport clubs (FMU) has organised a three-day training workshop for time and safety marshals.

The event that started on Friday at the Victoria University is going on until Sunday. The event is being facilitated by Kenyan instructor Surinder Bharaj who is a certified FIA instructor.

"It is good to have good communication, knowledge of the rules and skills of conflict resolutions during an event on top of teamwork," Surinder said.

He also explained that panel stewards have no right to stop the rally and this has cleared a lot of incidents where stewards have been ordering COC to cancel a stage.

Over seventy officials from all FMU clubs attended the meeting.

FMU deputy vice-president Jeff Kabagambe said that the three-day workshop was meant to equip FMU and club officials with new FIA regulations that will help them organise better and safer rallies.
