Ssempebwa and Wamala were able to fix the leak and made it safely back to the service park enabling the drivers and the team to celebrate their well-earned podium result.

“We are very happy to have scored this podium result. Our objective has always been to bring the car home and finish the rally, so to take a podium is really a nice bonus for us,” Ssempebwa said.

It was the first African rally championship for Ssempebwa and Wamala and they hope to be part of the rest of the four ARC events remaining on this year’s calendar so as to acquire more experience. However, they ruled out being this year’s ARC contenders.

Other Ugandans, Duncan Mubiru and Shafik Ssemujju who also competed in the Tanzania rally retired earlier in the second day of the event.

Kenya’s Jaspreet Singh Chatthe navigated by Zambia Dave Sihoka won the rally followed by Ivory Coast’s Garry Chanyes who stretched his ARC lead to 76 points leaving Singh Chatthe and Mohamed Essa on 58 and 50 points respectively with four rallies to go.
