Riders to use weekend's Motocross to prepare for Ugandan outing

Posted on May 24, 2012 at 1:10 PM

The East Africa Motor Sports Club has announced that the Motocross event that was cancelled on the weekend of 12-13 May will now be run this weekend at the Jamhuri Park.

The event, the 4th round of the Kenya National Motocross Championship, was cancelled on the 11th hour after the gravel track was deemed impassable following heavy rains. The rains have since subsided and club officials are optimistic of running a trouble free event.

Incidentally this weekend was free as there was no other motorsport event to take place according the KMSF 2012 motorsports calendar.

Talking to Flatout Action, Maina Muturi –FIM Africa Vice President (Environment)- explained that competitors will use this weekend’s race to also prepare for the FIM Central Africa Championship (CAC) which will be held in Uganda on Sunday, June 2nd.

“It will be a buildup to CAC round 2 which will be in Uganda. The Ugandans will be launching a new track that weekend so this will be a buildup to also expose Kenyans to the new track which will be used in June and also for the continental championship at the end of August.”

He added, “What we are doing right now is selection of the Kenya team for August and preparing them for the race the other weekend.”

Riders will practice at Jamhuri Park on Saturday with main action starting on Sunday at 0900hrs.
