The organisers of the Sexy Speed Rally have emphasised on safety and security going into the final round of the National Rally Championship in Jinja.

Dubbed the Sexy Speed Rally, the decisive event which is organised by Motorsport Africa Club (MOSAC) due November 26-27 in Jinja.

Clerk of Course Shafic Matovu said that the name (Sexy Speed Rally) was adopted just to attract the Youths as they target massive vaccination during the event.

He added: “We have had a few incidents in motorsport but they are inevitable. In this particular event of the sexy rally, the name is to attract the youth and hence get vaccinated. By doing that, we would like to reduce on the spread of Covid19.

“What we have improved on in the current status of safety is that we have brought in two direction arrows where the rally cars are going to pass so that drivers are not going off the road.

“We have also sensitized the locals and employed some of the defence teams to help in safety of the event. We see the conditions that our country is going through, we are going to have very strict security measures especially at the beginning of the rally and at the service park that is Mwiri Primary School and Source of the Nile respectively.”

He revealed that there will be tight security which will also ensure that people do not crowd.

He urged fans to have safe places to watch from before adding that there will be Vaccination points set at all viewing points.
