Flood Of Uganda Entries For The Cba Africa Concours D’elegance

Coastweek -- The Alfa Romeo Owners Club has received a flood of car and motorcycle entries from Uganda in recent days for the CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance scheduled for September 30th at the Nairobi Racecourse.

Nine cars and 19 motorcycles will be brought from Kampala to Nairobi to contest the classiest event on the Kenya motor sport calendar.

The annual Concours gives the owners of well-kept cars and bikes the opportunity to have them assessed by highly experienced judges while showcasing them to the motor enthusiasts who flock to the racecourse.

Competitors also have the chance to win prizes in the 12 classes for cars and eight for motorcycles and there are awards for the best costumes and teams.

Lucy Mungai, the Concours Secretary, commented, “There is every indication that we will have a full field of 70 cars and a strong motorcycle entry before the final deadline in mid-September.

“In addition there is growing interest in Auto Expo, the Motor Trade section, and the Classic Sale which is open to cars and bikes made 25 years ago, or earlier regardless of their condition”.

Regulations for the CBA Concours, Auto Expo and the Classic Car and Motorcycle Sale are available from the Bob Dewar Publicity offices in Block G of Norfolk Towers, Kijabe Street.

The email address is and telephone inquiries may be made by calling
landlines, 2229793, 3316160, or 2229459 and mobile 0733732032 during office hours.

The Uganda entries include a 1987 Panther Kallista which is a fine two seater open sports car made in Britain using Ford engines.

Kakooza Wazzir will drive this sports car on the Total Excellium inspection ramp and along the judging line in front of the main grandstands at the racecourse.

Kakooza has also entered a 1980 Toyota Mark II Corona and a 1986 Peugeot 504.

The Toyota Corona was second last year in the up to 1600 cc touring car class and was followed by the Volkswagen Beetle of Jinja based Leslie Carvell who will be making her fifth appearance at the Racecourse on September 30th.

In 2017 Ronald Walusimbi was the most successful participant from Uganda in the Concours d’Elegance by winning the up to 2000cc touring car class with his highly prepared 1974 Mercedes Benz saloon.

He has also entered a 1967 Toyota Corona which will be well worthwhile watching.

Edgar Katamujuna is another regular competitor from Uganda and he will place his hopes on his Volkswagen Beetle which was made in 1967 and will provide a worthy rival for Leslie Carvell.

19 members of the Ugandan Bikers Association (UBA) will be riding their big motorcycles from Kampala to Nairobi for the Concours.

Four of them will be participating in a fundraising event from Kampala to Cape Town and will arrive in Nairobi in time to join the other team members for the Concours.

The Uganda contingent has a strong reputation for winning the Trail and Enduro classes at the Nairobi Racecourse.

In 2017 Gianfranco Masetto the Vice Chairman of the UBA and Antonino D’Agostino won these classes.
