The annual motorsport calendar for the year 2020 of Sri Lanka Automobile Sports (SLAS) and its affiliations, was released at its Annual general Meeting (AGM), which was held last week. According to the 2020 racing calendar, SLAS, the parent body for motorsports in Sri Lanka, has retained the organising right of the ever popular Fox Hill Supercross in the upcoming season.
The motorsport calendar, released by SLAS, includes 21 events lined up for the coming year. This includes eight Supercross events, five Road Races, four Rallies and three each of Rally Cross and Hill Climbs. The calendar will flag off with the Eliyakanda Hill Climb, to be held on February 22 and 23 in Matara and will wind up with the Negombo Speed Rally, which is scheduled for November 28 and 29.
Out of the 21 events, four will be organsed by the Sri Lanka Autosports Drivers’ Association (SLADA), while Sri Lanka Association for Racing Drivers and Riders (SLARDAR) and Sri Lanka Motorcycle Club (SLMCC) will take the lead in organising three events each. The Negombo Motor Sports Club (NMSC) and Motor Racing Association (MRA) will organise two events each.
One event each will be organised by the Southern Motor Sports Club (SMSC), Asian Motor Racing Club (AMRC), Ceylon Motor Sport Club (CMSC) and Colombo Motor Sport Club. In addition SMSC and MRA will jointly organise an event — the Rally Sri Lanka, which will be held in mid September.
The SLAS announced that the calendar is subjected to alteration, in which events could be removed, added or have the dates altered if and when the calendar begins to come active.
