About

The Rwanda Mountain Gorilla Rally, known originally as the Fraternity Rally, is an international rally racing event organised by the Rwanda Automobile Club. The rally is based in the Rwandan capital of Kigali. The event is a round of the African Rally Championship and the Rwandan National Rally Championship.
The Fraternity Rally was first run in 1999 as motorsport re-established itself after the Genocide against Tutsi. It began as a cross-border rally that began in Kampala, Uganda before finishing in Kigali. The rally became part of the African championship in 2000, restoring a Rwandan presence to the African championship absent since 1988. Over time the Ugandan portion of the event faded and the rally was renamed the Rwanda Mountain Gorilla Rally in 2002.
