The above was not the first win for Rajiv, He won 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 the fourth position.

The celebrated rally driver also won 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 not forgetting that he is a furious lion when it comes to golf competitions with skills that have ranked him higher than other rallyists.
