Yasin Nasser is upbeat after his fruitful Tanzania rally outing over the weekend.

Nasser and Ali Katumba in the Subaru GVB cruised to third place overall.

That result ended a streak of disappointments for the Ugandan crew.

And also for the first time in two years, the crew ended a race without mechanical mishaps.

“The feeling has been long overdue. We needed such a finish to forget our previous events as a crew.

“Coming to Tanzania, all we wanted was a clean race and a good finish. A podium was not in the target since we still had this bad luck on our minds,” said excited Nasser.

Rally Tanzania was his fifth event in two years.

The Uganda rally champion secured significant ARC points to go third on the leaderboard with 28 points.

“Our ARC plans are no longer on track since the pandemic hit us. For now, we just try to have fun in the events we can attend. It’s unfortunate that the home event will not happen again, we were looking forward to it.

“At the moment, we can’t be so sure of our next event. We shall sit and draw another plan for what’s ahead,” he added.
