Rajiv celebrates but Kikankane edges closer to NRC title

Duncan Mubiru Kikankane was not pleased with the results of the Kabalega Rally that concluded over the weekend in Houma

But his second place finish edged him closer to a maiden National Rally Championship (NRC).

Following the fifth round of NRC that has taken two years because of disruptions caused by the Covid 19 Pandemic, Kikankane finished 45 seconds behind Rajiv Ruparelia.

Rajiv claimed six of the seven stage wins in what was a seamless drive to seal the victory.

Rajiv with Enoch Olinga as co-driver in a VW Polo, clocked 1.44.56 while Kikankane and Musa Nsubuga came home in a time of 1:45:41.

Ronald Ssebuguzi and Anthony Mugambwa came third with Omar Mayanja and Hussein Mukuye fourth.

The results mean the crew of Mubiru hold a seventy point advantage over Hassan Alwi who have 280 points.

The previous leader Fred Busulwa is third with 270 points with Mayanja a further 10 points behind.

 The final round of the NRC championship that saw the prestigious Pearl of Africa Rally cancelled will be held next month in Jinja.

Duncan Mubiru  350
