Quiet and flamboyant rider Filbert ‘Super Boy’ Muwonge is targeting his maiden CAC podium at the Easter weekend FIM Central African Motocross challenge.
The first round of the 2022 regional championship is set to be held at the redesigned Victoria Raceway track, Garuga.

His aggressiveness and consistence is just on point, the team just prays for a safe ride always; added Ssentamu.
