The Federation of Motorsport Clubs of Uganda (FMU) has received a Medical Ambulance from Ruparelia Foundation and Victoria University to help them facilitate their activities.
The Federation received the state of the art ambulance as a donation from Victoria University under Ruparelia Foundation in an event held at Kabira County Club on Tuesday.
The rally, mostly, goes through a living environment that puts the lives of the drivers and spectators at stake.
“This is a huge milestone and a great achievement for the Sport and the fraternity as a whole,” said FMU President Dipu Ruparelia.
“Despite the challenges we have faced since we came into administration, this is the start of one of many assets we have acquired and is very critical in helping our medical commission in emergency evacuations.
“The Federation is on the right path, this launch and partnership is just one of many we will be rolling out soon. FMU will be one of the leading Federations very soon if we continue this way and keep carrying positive energies.”
According to motorists Ambrose Byonna, many motorists get accidents during the races and in most cases, they have been borrowing ambulances from Red Cross.
Muganga noted: “We have no doubt that this fully equipped Ambulance will certainly promote safety in the Motorsport industry by availing both rescue and medical services on the track and all the way to the Hospital if necessary and most importantly providing the best possible immediate care in the shortest possible time.”
“We shall continue to work closely with FMU and Motorsport fraternity to improve the safety of all the actors in the Sport.”
FMU President Dipu commended the Drivers who came on board to clear the environment tax placed on the ambulance by URA.
This is the first ever ambulance to be owned by the federation.
