Ssebuguzi shines despite time penalty

KAMPALA

Ronald Ssebuguzi and his navigator Cedric Buzabo, cruising an Evo 9, overcame a penalty of five minutes and 20 seconds to win the OiLibya Mt.Elgon Rally in Mbale last Sunday. City lawyer Musa Kabega and co-driver Rogers Sirwomu in an Evo 6 earned their first podium finish in three events.
Jonas Kansiime finished third and the crew of Dr. Ahmed Ashraf and Peter Stone finished fourth in an event that had drivers complain of tallying irregularities.
The event, however, left organisers MOSAC with key areas to improve. In the Super Special Stage where fans expected a two-run double circuit, only one run was made, and in the dark. There were also no marshals at the four-kilometer section in Bukedea TC in the morning and some drivers changed routes.
