story geneva;”>Muwonge, salve though inactive this year, is now ranked 7th female rally driver in the world after collecting 192 points.

Muwonge has only been involved in one FMU rally calendar which is the Pearl of Africa Uganda Rally where she finished 6th.

The Kenyan head-girls’ crew also finished the rally ahead of the then African rally champion, Mohamed Essa.

Muwonge is still the only African female rally driver in the top ten drivers hence can be declared the top African female rally driver this year.

The voting is being done annually in November and its being done on assessment of how the driver has performed that year.

In 2011, after being crowned Uganda national rally championship champion, Muwonge in world rankings came out as number three and that was her best position ever.

Meanwhile, though Muwonge hasn’t been too involved in the game, she promised to come back next year.

“I decided to devote much of my time to other businesses this year but next year, I will be back in the game,” said the Kobil sponsored rally driver who acquired the Subaru N14 from last year’s African rally champion, Mohamed Essa.

Molly Taylor of Australia is leading the chat of female rally drivers with 736 points followed by Burcu Cetinkaya (Turkey), Asja Zupanc (Slovenia), Ekaterina Stratieva (Bulgaria), Melissa Debackere (Belgium), Serbia and Jovana Jovanovic (Montenegro), respectively.
