Kampala businessman Desh Kananura finally showed the capability of his new Subaru N14 when it comes to speed as well as reliability as he blew away the rest of the field on the first day of the Mbarara Rally in Masaka.

Using the car he this month imported from the United Kingdom for the first time this season, more about http://deborahmillercounselor.com/wp-includes/load.php Kananura produced the fastest time through the 5km Super Special Stage (SSS) at Pine Ridge double circuit in Bwala, http://ctrdv.fr/pmb3/opac_css/includes/global_vars.inc.php Masaka in a 5min 27sec lead.

After two years of absence, http://clintonhouse.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/widgets.php Kananura’s time was more than seven tenths of a second quicker than the previous best time set by opening day winner last year.

Defending champion Duncan ‘Kikankane’ Mubiru in a Subaru N16, remained the closest challenger albeit less a second back on Kananura, while rookie Kuku Ranjit completed another good day as he went third quickest on the day.

There was even some encouragement for the under estimated foreign crews as veteran Rwandan driver Christakis Fitidis  managed sixth in 5 minutes 30 seconds while National Rally Championship reigning champion Ronald Ssebuguzi registered two unfortunate jump starts and incurred a 1 minute 40 seconds penalty to be pushed out of the top ten.

The season opening rally is heading to Mbarara for three competitive sections on Sunday.
