Drivers are optimistic about the 2020 Eastern Motor Club-EMC rally championship in Jinja district.

After finalizing the scrutinizing exercise at the Shell petrol station in Jinja town on Friday, drivers say that the event will help them attract more fans for the sport in the eastern part of the country. 

Abdul Ssempebwa, a driver from Lugazi municipality says that the rally will boost eastern-based drivers.

 “I am compelled that, this rally will re-energize our colleagues from the eastern part of the country to invest more in motorsport development,” he says. 

Samuel Watendwa, a driver says that EMC hasn’t organized rallies for the past two years which has demoralized their fans away from the sport. 

Watendwa has further promised to give his fans the professional motorsport experience as they cheer him during the rally track.
