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,

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