The 8th edition of the Uda Walawe Supercross organised by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Motor Sports committee of the SLA Electrical & Mechanical Engineering (SLEME) and supported by the SL Motorcycle Club (SLMC) will speed off at Uda Walawe Supercross in Sevanagala, Uda Walawe on Sunday (13).
The inaugural meet held in 2011, has since gone from strength to strength, and this year too, the organisers, along with the sponsors, will be looking forward to a successful event, as in previous years.
The unique feature of this racing track is that spectators can view the whole racing track from one point. The racing track is 170 metres long and 30 metres wide with five bends in a slope terrain. The organizers claim that this racing track has been upgraded as the best gravel racing track in the island.
The Walawe Supercross is not only fun and enjoyment for the spectators, as the SLEME is conducting this with a worthy cause in mind, with all proceeds destined for the benefit of terrorist victims of the Regiment and for disabled soldiers, which they have been doing since 2011.
The organizers expect over 200 competitors including from overseas, to be in action in the 12 motorcar and 12 motorcycle events scheduled.
Driver Ashan Silva and rider Ishan Dasanayake, leaders in the two categories, will no doubt be the cynosure of all eyes.
