Ssemujju at 24 years has not been in any competition fully this year citing the lack of a machine.

The car he has been using (Subaru N11), is now on market for sale as he vies for a better one that can help him compete favourably on the continent.

However, the talented driver revealed that he still needs to have more sponsors on board to enable him achieve his dream of becoming the youngest Uganda to become an African champion.

“I have hope that I can make it on the continental level but I still need some sponsors,” added Ssemujju.

Although he hasn’t won the local championship, if he does go ahead to achieve the goal and dream of being African champion next year, he will have walked in the foot-steps of this year’s African champion, Jussy Singh, who won the championship without winning the Zambian championship.

Ssemujju has a long way to go since many experienced drivers are looking ahead to lift next year’s championship and among those are Mohamed Essa, Jussy Singh and Kenneth Mukosa all from Zambia plus Davite of Rwanda.

Meanwhile, with only three days left for the Championship sprint to take off at Festino Cite in Mukono, Ssemujju has again vowed to leave senior rally driver, Ponsiano Lwakataka, “chasing dust” in this sprint.

“I know each and every tactic to win. My rival will “chase dust” on Boxing Day,” said Ssemujju.

Lwakataka and Shafick have a bet of their own and the winner between the two will take home Shs 2m.

If Ssemujju goes on to just finish this sprint, automatically he will be crowned this year’s sprint champion, a championship that was won by Ronald Ssebuguzi last year.
