Uganda will have no representative in the third round of the Africa Rally Championship (ARC) after none registered for the 2014 Zambia International Rally that gets underway next weekend on between May 16th-18th May.
Ugandan teenage rally ace Shafik Semujju had confirmed to Kawowo Sports a couple of weeks ago that he would make his continental debut in the event but the final list released by the organizers on www.africarallychampionshi.com didn’t feature any Ugandan.
21 drivers registered for the event of which five are competing for the ARC title this year. Zambians Essa Mohammed and Kenneth Mukosa, Rwanda’s Giancarlo Davite, Kenya’s Jaspreet Chatthe and reigning ARC leader Gary Chaynes from Ivory Coast are the five ARC competitors on the list.
Last year’s ARC winner Jassy Singh will also take part in the 471.56Km event.
