A notable highlight of these meetings was the attendance of a distinguished guest from the Federation, Mr. Reynolds Kibira, Deputy Vice President Motorsport. Mr. Kibira’s presence brought a wealth of experience and insight into the broader vision and goals of the Federation, adding a valuable perspective to the discussions.

EMC’s commitment to inclusivity and transparency was evident, as voices from various corners of the club were heard and meticulously documented. This approach aimed to ensure that a diverse array of viewpoints was considered in the decision-making process, reflecting the democratic ethos that underpins the club’s operations.

A significant outcome of the weekend deliberations was the unanimous decision to task the president of EMC with representing the collective views of the club before the Federation. This move underscores the unity and cohesion within the club, as they present a unified front in the ongoing discussions.

Among the key views put forth to the Federation is a request for a minimum of two symposiums before any final decisions are reached. This cautious approach highlights the clubs’ dedication to thorough deliberation and a comprehensive understanding of the proposed changes. The desire for an inclusive process that allows for the exchange of ideas and concerns is paramount to EMC members.

A noteworthy request from the club pertains to the retention of the current nomenclature. EMC proposes that the name “Federation of Motorsports Clubs of Uganda” remains unchanged, emphasizing continuity and the identity of the existing body. This plea reflects a commitment to preserving the heritage and legacy of motorsports in Uganda.
