“As motor clubs and the federation, we need to create competition in different territory just like we did in the Mbale Rally. It is one way of promoting the sport” Kabagambe noted.

Safety a penetrating issue was another concern cited in the Fort Portal move.

“The beauty about racing in upcountry areas, there are more closed routes compared to the ones in the central and this comes in handy to help us handle safety throughout the event better” he added.

The event will run on two days weekend with a Super Special at the Boma Grounds on July 4th.

NRC leader Arthur Blick Jnr will continue to peruse his dream of winning the NRC maiden title at the attempt in Subaru Impreza N10, after winning the last series (CMC Challenge Rally) in Mukono.

The victory, the second in a row after his triumph in the Jinja Rally in March, helped Blick stretch his NRC lead to 85 points after three events.
