Ace Ssebuguzi wants to continue sprint stranglehold


Ronald Ssebuguzi is referred to as ‘king of sprints’ after winning the three Super Special Sections (SSS) of the opening three rounds of NRC in Mbarara, Jinja and Masaka.

Ssebuguzi is one of the 19 drivers that have so far registered to take part in the Race to Race sprint to take place at Uganda Motorsports Arena- Busiika this Sunday.

Ssebuguzi, twice national champion (2006, 2009) and current leader in race for the title this year, has played down his domination in the sprints.
“I don’t believe I am the fastest, I try to make fewer mistakes than my opponents. May be that is why I end up winning the sprints,” said the burly driver.

He singled out Jas Mangat, Christakis Fitidis, Susan ‘Super Lady’ Muwonge, Duncan ‘Kikankane’ Mubiru and Wycliff Bukenya as some of the fastest drivers around, who can win at Busiika.

The drivers will have two runs with a total distance of 8.54km. Entries close on May30. Drivers will start recce today. Action start at 10 am with MX riders.
