The Moil petroleum sponsored crew is now sightseeing the Tanzania’s NRC as a possible mission after winning the Ugandan.
The Subaru GVB crew is slowly uping up their game to stamp authority across East Africa and to prove it, participation in most of prestigious events across the region has become a priority.
After the launch of their second rally car another Subaru GVB nicknamed (GVB Junior), the crew is targeting TNRC and UgNRC using different cars.
According to Ali Katumba the co-driver when addressing a certain media, was quoted saying “we launched another car and yes we want to be more competitive, the team will be doing two championships in 2021 that’s Tanzania and Uganda though the focus might be on Tanzania as our priority.
“The GVB JR. will be based in Tanzania then senior in Uganda purposely for international events, but the sponsor still will determine where they want us to put force and efforts. Meaning shall do selected events in Uganda if the sponsor stands by Tanzania”.
