KAPEEKA: Budding rally driver Rajiv Ruparelia put on a display of domination at the Auto Cross Rally in Kapeeka on Sunday, winning his second competitive race after an entertaining display.
On a perfect afternoon in Kapeeka, the Ruparelia Group Managing Director turned rally driver marked an impressive third outing in his ‘RR – Double Trouble’ team and cruising his newly launched VW Polo Proto, imported from Poland.
Rajiv came first for second time in a row after having won the Federation of Motorsport Clubs of Uganda (FMU) 2019 Autocross event in Kayunga, on his second competitive event in late June.
In April this year, Rajiv joined Rallystar Academy in South Africa for a specialised rally training. He was trained by Africa’s number one trainer Leone Botha.
Navigated by Ronnie Walia, Rajiv’s team RR – ‘Double Trouble’ is managed by veteran rally driver Dipu Rupareria while Mike Mwangi is the Chief Mechanic.
