Only 38 crews were cleared to take on the third round of the National Rally Championship that kicks off today in Masaka.
Three-time NRC champion Jas Mangat and co-driver Joseph Kamya will lead the charge going first off the ramp in their Mitsubishi Evo X.
Mangat will not only open the roads but also remain the event’s favorite to claim the victory given his supreme pace as well as his chase for his forth NRC title.
Hassan Alwi in a Subaru Impreza starts in second followed by Kepher Walubi in third.
Chistakis Fitidis starts fourth followed by reigning NRC champion before the current NRC leader Ronald Sebuguzi comes in sixth.
Predictions for the weekend’s event remain complicated with all the top drivers on the lineup.
A top finish for any of the top ten drivers on the standings will stand an advantage to consolidate their title chase ahead of the forth round.
Crews revs off the battle with a double super special stage at Kato grounds in Masaka.
