In the beginning of the 2018 season National Rally Championship (NRC) calendar, Suzan ‘Super Lady’ Muwonge had her focus on a podium finish. However, she now has shifted her focus to the National Rally Championship (NRC) title that she last won in 2011.

Muwonge disclosed this in an interview after finishing second in the Kabalega UMOSPOC rally on Saturday and Sunday in Hoima.

 



“The NRC is now open and am going for it.I think where it is, we can win it,” the Super Lady said.

The former NRC champion navigated by her long time co-driver Edmond Kyeyune is second nationallys with 320 points, 20 behind leader Ronald Ssebuguzi on 340 points  and fifteen ahead of Jas Mangat on 305 points.

Asked whether she can handle the pressure mounted by three men, the Super lady as she popularly known among the rally fraternity answered in affirmative.

“Iam a former champion and if I can handle the pressure that was in the Kabalega rally, then I can handle any pressure,” she said.

In 2011, Muwonge beat Posiano Lwakataka in the UMOSPOC rally in Mukono to win the title.
