After his rival and current NRC leader Jas Mangat suffered misfortunes in the just concluded Africa Rally Championship round in Tanzania, Ronald Sebuguzi’s chances at this year’s title race returned to life.
The fifth round of the 2016 National Rally Championship in Hoima and Masindi this weekend will lay grounds for Sebuguzi to either close gap on NRC leader or widen it.
Sebuguzi heads to Hoima 85 points behind Mangat with an event’s advantage over his rival Mangat who will miss the Pearl Rally in September.
“Our target is to finish ahead of Mangat. That will help us in the points,” said Sebuguzi who took part in Sunday’s Autocross race.
Only a top finish in Hoima will get the Mitsubishi driver closer to registering his fourth NRC title as he hopes for Mangat to finish in further places.
Sebuguzi has collected a total of 215 from the last four events, finishing on podium in the three with a win and retiring from one.
He will also have to take caution of other drivers like Desh Kananura, Omar Mayanja, Kuku Ranjeet and others to the top position in Hoima.
