PRESS RELEASE NO.1 - Thursday 25th August 2005 (by Leon Ssenyange) 

The African Rally Championship crosses into the Equatorial country of Uganda for the 749-km Pearl of Africa rally. This rally is the seventh round of the 2005 African Rally Championship, which takes a mass of competitors for the first time to the delightful central region of Wakiso-Luweero. This will take place from the 9th-11th of September, which makes it the last of this year's trilogy of dry and moderately gravel rally fixtures.
This is a somewhat special event. The drivers are expected to bring a few surprises to the competition that is going to be one of the interesting challenges of the ARC because it is a title decider. This rally may is not be one for the faint-hearted Ugandans, but then that's part of its appeal. It's not the region that will make this rally– it is the combination of stuff - speed, jumps and the title battle between reigning champion Muna Singh and Uganda’s very own Riyaz Kurji.
Reigning African champion Muna Singh may have to put the disappointment of the Mountain Gorilla Rally in Rwanda behind him and try to dominate an event that could make him a double African champion. And with stages as short as 5.4 km on the menu, his road-sweeping duties will have to last longer if he stands to claim the double to become the third ARC driver to secure consecutive titles after Ivorian Alain Ambrosino (1986, 1987) and Satwant Singh (1988, 1989).

However, ready to do his utmost to extend his run to two ARC wins in a row and also claim his first African title, is Alpha Team’s Riyaz Kurji.
The Pearl rally holds a special place for any driver also vying for the national rally title. In this case, Uganda’s Riyaz Kurji will be battling at two fronts; to claim his maiden national and continental titles and is bound to take a more conservative approach.
Day one, will feature the 5.7 km sprint at the Lubiri Double Circuit. This may be the fans’ specialty as they will get a chance to see the drivers and soak up some dust. Everything may seem comparatively pristine here; but we shall expect a good show.

Day two and three will take the twist to Luweero. A rally in this region is one of the most spectacular, fastest and most challenging fixtures. Its a combination of soft gravel and flat out routes that call for impeccable handling from the cars, plus extreme precision and bravery from the drivers.

From a technical point of view, this rally offers a different challenge for the drivers. There's no need to cope with the rough, pounding surfaces. The focus is on maintaining good balance and grip, combined with responsiveness. The stages will be repeated thrice on day two. The same will apply on day three but for one stage; CS4 Kyevunze-Nalongo.
