The rally, set for April 29-30, is the third round of the national championship (NRC) series events. Official entries close tomorrow.
Defending champion Ronald Ssebuguzi, seasoned campaigners Ashraf Ahmed, Christakis Fitidis, Omar Mayanja and Ranjit Kuku are some of the big-name drivers already on the list.
