The second edition of the Armed Forces Appreciation Challenge will take place on a new and improved layout.
This is after the team in charge of the track announced they have reconfigured it in time for this year’s race. The track which opened in 2010 and held the first motocross championship the same year, has undergone significant alterations over the past few weeks, specifically to improve the Jumps and polish the tracks.
“The main reason behind the remodeling is to put the track on international standards that most of
the riders jetting in are accustomed to.” Track Supervisor Hassan Wasswa told NBS Sport.
Wasswa also said that the new improvements will enable a more competitive and entertaining race among the riders while also ensuring safety.
The riders will get a chance to train on the remodeled race track on Saturday before the event that is taking place on 27th of November 2022.
The leader of the organizing committee who is also director of the Busiika race track, Barack Orland
confirmed at the official launch of the 2022 edition held at Kololo Ceremonial Independence grounds
on the 2nd of November 2022 that riders from Israel, South Africa, America, Europe, Uganda, Kenya,
Tanzania and elsewhere will all take part in the challenge.
Apart from the race many activities have been organized to entertain the public including parachute air performances and go karting.
The armed forces challenge that is returning after a break due to Covid -19 is aimed at appreciating the men in uniform that serve the country diligently.
