Eastern Motor Club is not only based in Jinja or Busoga sub-region but it takes the entire eastern region. But previously they have been organizing events in Busoga region, but this time around, they chose to go far in the east to give opportunity to people of Bukedea and neighboring towns to watch the rally.

“Organizing a single rally is a challenge in terms of finance because it takes a lot, only one event can take Shs100m. But we have an opportunity to work with the Speaker of parliament at this time round. You know that she’s a sports lady,” Kagolo said.

Over 45 drivers are expected to register in this year’s event which is one of the best local tourism sports ventures in Uganda. When the rally goes to such areas, along with many fans from different parts of the country and nearby countries, it will increase the people’s income in Bukedea,” he added.

The president confirmed when they approached the Speaker to take the rally in Bukedea she was okay with it and the rally will take place in her constituency.

Meanwhile, the Eastern Motor Club is mandated by the Federation of Motorsports Uganda FMU to organize the second event of the national championship on the 2023 calendar.
