The 2019 National Rally championship (NRC) reaches its conclusion this weekend in what promises to be a grueling Day –two of the MOSAC rally in Nakaseke district.

Crews are out to tackle the competitive stages that are a mix of rocky, rough and smooth areas of the event that decides the champions in the three calendar categories.

The stages include Nsaka (21.3kms), Kyamutakasa (30kms), Industrial Park (2.45kms), repeat Kaddunda and Kyamutakasa (30kms) and end the rally with a repeat of the Industrial Park stage.

With a 30-point gap separating title contenders Yasin Nasser and Arthur Blick Jr, in the elite category (NRC), both crews are talking big with each promising to attack right from the start to avoid the mathematics that may come at the end of the day.

“There is complicated mathematics. It is just one plus one, meaning that if I do not win, I to finish second,” table leader Yasin Nasser stated after scrutineering.

 “To be specific to you, we are going flat-out because if we do not win we have to finish behind Blick. That is why I told you that its one plus one formula,” the MOIL Fueled driver added.

 Yasin Navigated by Ali Katumba in a Subaru GVB are 415 points, 30 ahead of Blick navigated by George Ssemakula in a Mitsubishi Evo10.

On the other hand, Blick is also spitting fire and he said,” It is only the car that will let us down, but we are going to attack aggressively.”

Rajiv, Lubega fight for CRC

Despite an inferior machine, Ibrahim Lubega in a Subaru Impreza has promised rival Rajiv Ruparelia a run for his money in the battle for Club man rally championship (CRC).

With a point gap separating the two, the winner of today rally will be crowned champion. However, Oryx fueled Peter Businge and Najib Ssempijja with 35 and 23 points respectively will come in the title race if the top two drops out.
