Zambia rally ace Mohammed Essa becomes the seventh foreign crew to win the Shell Pearl of Africa Uganda Rally.

The 23-year-old was crowned the champion yesterday after completing the 644.89km event of which 371.75km was competitive in a total of 02:38:10.  The win also puts him in sight of his maiden Africa Rally Championship (ARC) title. The excited Zambian said that he will try to seal the ARC title in Tanzania in September. “This win is a bonus for me. Before I set of from Zambia, my aim was to finish fit top three. I have enjoyed the event although the roads were a bit rough,” he told the press.

However, Essa was disappointed with the standard of Uganda drivers. “Apart from Jas (Mangat) the rest of the drivers did not give it all. I saw them in super special stage (Lubiri). A foreigner coming and beat you in your own backyard is not a good sign,” he ended. Mangat who finished second over two minutes behind was relieved man at the end. “The event had become of the jinx for me in Subaru. This is my first finish and I am thrilled. I thought it was not going to happen when I had gear box problem yesterday morning. But thank to my mechanics who fixed the problem. Topping the NRC is also a bonus for and ready for next event,” he said. Mangat leads the NRC with 283 points with two rounds to go.

Giancarlo Davite finished third ahead of Sebaguzi and was eventually placed ahead of the Jomayi team rider. But the fourth place was enough for Sebuguzi to joint second in NRC on 235 points with Duncan Mubiru who dropped out on Saturday. Susan ‘Super Lady’ Muwonge of Kobil Rally team, maintained her remarkable run of finishing Pearl event save for 2010 since 2007.  She has finished the ARC event no lower than fifth place. “It a double joy for me, finishing Pearl after having shocks problems the whole of Saturday and gives me chance of retaining the NRC title,” she said.
