RALLY ace Davite Giancarlo has something to build on over the next two rounds after finishing second in yesterday’s 2km Super Special Stage of the KCB Mt. Gorilla race.
Giancarlo, who was driving a Subaru Impreza N11, was two seconds slower that stage winner Jean Yves Ranarivelo of Madagascar after clocking two minutes and 29 seconds.

Wycliff Bukenya of Uganda claimed the final podium slot in a time of 2 minutes and 30 seconds while Christakis Fitidis, Claude Kwizera and Felekeni Mayaka finished 4th, 12th and 14th respectively.
