Mangati, who is navigated by Gihan De Silver, had inspected the route two weeks back but considered it important to carry out a fresh assessment.

The Madagascar rally is the last on the African calendar and was initially scheduled for last weekend only to be postponed over undisclosed reasons.

Mangati has a chance to re-write history if he can emerge victorious in this rally. He would be the first Ugandan to win the Madagascar Rally and also the second to be crowned African Rally Champion.

But Mangati must have it in mind that his Zambian rival, Jessy Singh, is behind him by only two points and that a win for the latter would end the former’s hopes of clinching the title.


At the moment, Mangati is leading the ARC championship with 83 points while Jessy is struggling with 81 points behind.

Reigning Zambia champion, Mohamed Essa, bowed out of this year’s title chase after failing to complete the Pearl of Africa Uganda rally in August.
