Kenyans head to Uganda for Vintage and Classic show

A team of Kenya motoring enthusiasts led by Peter Wanday, the chairman of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club, will take part in the sixth edition of the Uganda Vintage and Classic Auto show on July 29th at the Sheraton Hotel garden in Kampala.

The event is open to cars made in 1992, or earlier.

This is the first time Kenya is being represented by a large number of 11 cars.

The oldest machine in this contingent is a 1959 Volkswagen Beetle of Steve Warui who will also be showing a 1968 Volkswagen Kombi.

Nguyo Milcinovic will compete in a 1965 Volkswagen Kombi and a 1966 beetle.

Other participants include Michael Nyanjom with his 1970 Kombi, Martin Serem (1972 Kombi), Peter Wanday (1980 BMW 320) and Daniel Biwott (1985 Mercedes WD124).

Veteran Africa Concours competitor Paul Chemngorem has entered his 1981 BMW 316.

Talking about the event, Peter Wanday said: “Daniel Biwott and I are regular competitors in this event which is Uganda’s version of our CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance. Paul Chemngorem, Steve Warui, Daniel Biwott and I take part in the annual Concours and from our experiences, we are hoping to earn prizes in the Uganda competition.”

A total of 90 car entries are expected at this year’s event and will be parked in the beautiful and spacious grounds of the Sheraton Hotel with plenty of room for the judging team to assess each machine.

The panel of judges include Chris and Peter Hughes from Kenya who also officiate the Concours in Nairobi.
