THE KCB Pearl of Africa Uganda Rally has finally solved the puzzle of finding a place to host the first ever closed route race as directed by world motor sports governing body, FIA.
The event treasurer David Bitalo told a stakeholdersâ€™ breakfast meeting at Hotel Africana yesterday that the race will be run on closed roads in Buikwe, Lugazi, Mukono and Kayunga.
Bitalo said that the 524-km rally with a competitive distance of 211-km is expected to be free of accidents because roads will be completely closed to other motorists. The race is scheduled for July 15-17.
