“Everybody has been there and you have seen how my car has let me down. Hopefully next year, I will have a car that will not let me down,” said Lwakataka.

However, Shafick revealed that “it was just the pressure and that is why he rolled down the car. I will just continue with my style even if he comes back’’.

Shafick was the overall winner of the sprint as he topped this year’s sprint championship with 38 points ahead of Fred Wampamba.

Meanwhile, Jonas Matayo Kansiime won this year’s Clubman Rally Championship (CRC) after finishing 5th overall in the Festino Cite champions’ sprint on Boxing Day.

Abas Bukenya who was his close competitor, retired from the sprint earlier.

Ronald Ssebuguzi, who had nothing to fight for but just to participate, didn’t show an impressive performance hence finishing 4th behind Shafick Ssemujju, Wycliff Bukenya and Fred Wampamba, respectively.

The FMU calendar, though not yet approved, is expected to start early in February next year.
