After winning his first victory in the National Rally Championship in his motorsports career, Ace Rajiv Ruparelia had reason to celebrate.
Cruising in a VW Polo, Rajiv and his co-driver Enoch Olinga of the Ruparelia Rally Team put the pedal to the metal to keep within the top times of the event and make up for a delay suffered due to a mechanical glitch in the opening stage of the event.
The pair crossed the finish line in one hour, 45 minutes, and 41seconds to claim victory in the one-day rally.
It’s from that background that Rajiv Ruparelia on Sunday held a mega Victory BBQ Party at Kabira Country Club as he celebrated his maiden win in the NRC5 Kabalega Rally 2021.
Rajiv attributed his victory to his team’s thorough preparation and said his mechanical team did everything they could to ensure they emerge victorious in this rally, which yielded good fruits.
The youthful tycoon promised to continue winning titles, saying, “every rally we compete in, we keep getting better”.
Asked if he set his eyes on the NRC title, Rajiv said his Rally team is ready to vie for the last line of the title, despite the previous unfortunate incidents, which according to him will be resolved in the coming preparations.
He further warned fellow drivers Duncan Mubiru Kikankane Ronald Ssebuguzi to watch out for him next month’s National Rally Championship (NRC).
‘’This time I will not leave any stone unturned and am coming for you’’ Ruparelia warned.
He, however, lashed out at the Motorsport regulators in the country for failing to harmonize a clear calendar of events which demeans their efforts to secure sponsors and advertisers.
Guests at Kabira Country club were treated to performances from Musicians Karole Kasita and Mpaka Records boss, Ykee Benda among other notable celebrities who included; Vision Group’s Denzel Mwiyeretsi, Sanyu FM’s Patrick Salvador, and celebrated city lawyer Isaac Ssemakadde among other partners, friends, and well-wishers of the Ruparelias.
Revelers were also treated to a sumptuous Barbecue meal prepared and served by the expert chefs at Kabira, along with lots of drinks and wines, complimented with the orchestrated sounds of good music to wind down the party moods.
The party attracted different people including artists, City lawyers, Radio personalities, family and friends, Ruparelia groups, business partners and others.
