Kampala: Apart from being a young, dynamic, vibrant entrepreneur, businessman Rajiv Ruparelia is also a popular and recognizable promoter and fan of sports more experienced in golf and motor rally competitions.
It is against that background that Rajiv Rally Team, spearheaded by the managing director Rajiv, have come up with a promotion aimed at beginning the movement and spreading Motorsport love among Ugandans.
The ‘Volkswagen Polo Proto’ driver said that on August 14,2020, Rajiv Rally Team will gift two pairs of tyres to the winner who will be spotted with the Rajiv Rally Team sticker on his/her car.
“Beginning the movement and spreading Motorsport love. Stand a chance to win two pairs of tyres on the 14th August if you’re spotted with our sticker on your car” Rajiv Rally Team posted on social media.
Rajiv, who drives under the Rajiv Ruparelia Rally “Double Trouble” Team, and his co-driver and navigator Ronald Wallia since they started rallying, have created hard moments for top Ugandan rally drivers like Ponsiano Lwakataka, Jas Mangat, Ronald Ssebuguzi and Suzan Muwonge after the group losing a couple of competitions against Rajiv in the different rallies.
Among the competitions he has won is the Federation of Motorsport Clubs of Uganda (FMU) 2019 Autocross event held on 23rd June 2019 in Kayunga, where he finished at an impressive time of 05:18.5, ahead of the experienced Lwakataka who came in second place at a time of 05:22.2. Ronald Sebuguzi came third while Arthur Blick Jr settled for fourth position.
The son of tycoon Sudhir Ruparelia won his second race at the Auto Cross Rally in Kapeeka in 2019, again marking an impressive third outing in his ‘RR Double Trouble’ team in his VW Polo Proto, which was imported from Poland.
Rajiv also has experience in other fields like Quads, motocross bikes and buggies as well as tarmac racing
