Fred Wampamba may have finally discovered the reason behind his poor performance last season.

Disturbed by a Left Hand Drive car, Wampamba never thought twice to get back to a Right Hand Driver car.

He cruised in his new Subaru N10 to fourth place overall in Kabale Rally.

“I completely failed to bond with the left hand car, it had always been the reason for my poor performance,” he explained to Kawowo Sports

“My performance had completely gone down ever since I started driving with a left hand driver car.”

“People had started thinking that I have lost my grip on the pedal. But it was always the car and Kabale just proves it. I still have my drive.”

Wampamba also admits that it was because of the left hand drive car that he fell out with his navigator Paul Musaazi during the Mosac Jinja rally last year.

“I was always confused with the notes he called. I would take right to be left. So my navigator got fed up,” he said.

“But we are now back together in the car I am well versed with. Paul is a very good co-driver and I am sure we shall get more better in the next event,” he asserted.

Wampamba and Musaaza now have 60 points after two NRC rounds.
