Shell V-Power has announced a UGX25 million cash sponsorship towards three-time Uganda National Rally Champion, Ronald Sebuguzi.
Sebuguzi is one of four rally drivers to qualify for the World Rally Championship (WRC) Safari Rally 2021, which will take place in Nairobi, Kenya.
“I appreciate Ronald and his fellow drivers for the hard work they have continuously put in the game. Shell V-Power is proud to be part of the journey, working with champions like Ronald Sebuguzi. Through this sponsorship, we are fueling his ambitions to represent our country at this prestigious motorsport event,” said Mark Mutungi Fuels Manager, Vivo Energy Uganda.
The June 24 – 27 event is back on the FIA World Rally Championship calendar after a 19-year absence. It was regarded as one of motorsport’s most prestigious and celebrated events of its time before it departed the series in 2002.
“I look forward to representing my country at this prestigious motor-sporting event. I am grateful to Shell V-Power for the support that they have offered to me through the years as a professional racer. I have, for the past 10 years, used Shell V Power which has a high-octane level that maximizes the performance of my car making it a road warrior,” Sebuguzi said.
In Uganda, Shell V-Power has a long-standing history of supporting and contributing to the growth of racing through sponsorships of rallying talent and sporting events that include the National Rally Championships, Pearl of Africa Rally, Kabalega rally and the National Motocross championships.
“We reiterate our commitment to growing rallying and racing as a sport in Uganda through offering support to both the drivers and the sporting events. This year, that will be no different,” Mr Mutungi added.
