Kampala: This Sunday, all roads lead to Zion Estate at Sisa Nakawuka off Entebbe road for round 2 of the National Enduro, Autocross and 4X4 championships.
This follows a successful first round that was held in Kalangala earlier this year. Hendrix (Rwanda) Moses Wakhasa and Jonas Kansime were the winners in Enduro, 4X4 and Autocross respectively.
Enduro contestants will navigate a treacherous 9km circuit for 3 hours running through ravines, sandy terrains, bush trails, forest, soil excavation points, stone grids and other obstacles that will provide some technical challenges to test endurance and fitness of riders.
A 5.4 km stage awaits autocross contestants designed to make it interesting for both competitor and fans while the 4X4 contests will be treated to a short but very technical surface.
“We have provided a full menu for all participant’s in all categories, from a meandering Enduro track to a twisty autocross route with plenty of viewing minutes and a challenging 4×4 track” said Clerk of the course Joe Burua.
“A few riders and drivers were invited to give a view about the routes and found no issues with them” he added.
When asked about the safety of the track,
“We are trying to minimize maximum speeds to reduce chances of damage to vehicles, this is a good opportunity for crews to test vehicle boost and stopping ranges as well as polish personal driving skills,” Joe said.
The second round of the championships will be held on Sunday 17 on totally private land offered by Zion Estates located at Sisa at Nakawuka. The event has been supported by Victoria Country Resort Hotel, World Wide Movers and Zion Estates.
“On top of making some recommendations intended to make future autocross championships more attractive and interesting, Enduro Uganda Club is engaging the Estate management to design more roads that will accommodate a full rally as well as an MX circuit for the purpose of running a rally on 100% closed surface,” added Joe Burua when asked about future plans by Enduro Uganda to develop the 3 sporting disciplines.
