Jas Mangat Is The 2013 Pearl Of Africa Uganda Rally Champion As Frank Tundo Clings The 2nd Position



Uganda’s Jas Mangat on
Saturday won the 2013
Pearl of Africa Rally
Champion which ended in
the Ugandan capital
Kampala.
Driving his Mitsubishi
Lancer N10 together with
his navigator Gihan de
Silva, Mangat dominated
most of the sections in the
Shell VPower sponsored
event which started on
Friday with a Super Special
Sprint.
Mangat, who leads both the
Africa Rally Championship
and the National Rally
Championship in Uganda,
started the rally in good
style winning the Super
Special stage on Friday
ahead of the local and
foreign drivers.
In the competitive rally on
Saturday, it was a neck to
neck battle with the 2012
Pearl of Africa rally
champion Essa Mohammad
who eventually crushed
out. After the Zambian
Mohammad rolled his car,
Mangat was under no
pressure to win the rally as
most of the rivals were
further behind.
Zambia’s Jassy Singh came
second, while Frank Tundo
from Kenya finished in third
place. The organizers of
the event cancelled section
9 of the rally because of
heavy rains in the route.
The event, one of the
biggest on the African rally
calendar, attracted a
record 25 drivers. The
other foreign drivers
included Giancarlo Davite
and Christakis Fitidis from
Rwanda, and Kenya’s Ian
Duncan and Peter Horsey.
