The 2014 CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance set for September 28 at the Ngong Racecourse, Nairobi and organised by Alfa Romeo Owners Club has attracted the strongest ever entry from Uganda in the 44 year history of the event.
The Ugandan contingent includes three cars in addition to 12 massive motorcycles which will be ridden by members of the Uganda Bikers Association (UBA) from Kampala to Nairobi.
More competitors from Uganda are likely to register before entries close on September 12th. It is expected that there will be a full field of 70 cars and 40 motorcycles which is the limit in the regulations in the interest of maintaining high standards of judging.
The oldest of the cars from Uganda is a 1970 Volkswagen Beetle of Leslie Carvell which he uses in conservation awareness. Tom Magezi is rebuilding a 1974 Volkswagen Kombi and Charles Nsubuga will be driving his 1979 Peugeot to the Ngong Racecourse to contest the classiest event on the Kenya Motor Sport calendar.
There are 12 car and eight motorcycle classes in the Concours which gives the owners of well kept machines the chance of winning prizes after experienced judges make their assessment while spectators admire the amazing variety of the competing cars and bikes.
Classes for cars include utility vehicles, saloons of different sizes, sports and rally cars with one for cars made in 1940, or earlier. There are eight motorcycle categories for street, trail and competition machines.
