As the Colonel Commandant of Sri Lanka Armoured Corps, I am honoured to send this message to the souvenir published on the occasion of 8th Cavalry Supercross to be held on 08 July 2018. The successful conduct of the 7th Cavalry Supercross in 2017 displayed outstanding results in terms of the spirit of the Armour to accept any challenges. Hence, I consider it as a great honour to be the Colonel Commandant of this prestigious Corps to witness the Supercross event for the successive second time. Therefore, I take this opportunity to extend my good wishes to everyone who contributed to its success.

The Strong foundation on which this mega event came into being will no doubt help the Armoured Corps to get more benefits in future. The publicity received during the past is certain to enhance its popularity among the sport lovers in all over the country. I have no doubt that the organizing committee, SLADAR officials, the sponsors, the drivers/riders and motor sports enthusiasts will make this event a grand success. Moreover, this will also facilitate to uplift the standards of motor racing in Sri Lanka in the years to come.

As the Colonel Commandant of Armoured Corps, I must emphasize the importance of this event held annually to generate funds to help the families of fallen war heroes, improve facilities to all differently able soldiers and promote welfare facilities for the serving soldiers. In addition, it will make the Regiment financially strong to face future challenges.

I would like to convey my sincere gratitude to the sponsors and well wishes for their generous support to the successful conduct of the Cavalry Supercross in this year. Also I would like to appreciate the contribution of the other sponsors while welcoming the new sponsors who joined hands with the Cavalry Supercross for the first time this year. I wish all of them good luck in their future endeavours.

Further, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to SLADAR, the Sri Lanka Army, fellow cavalrymen and all others for their commitment and untiring effort to make this event a great success. Finally, I extend my compliments to all the drivers and riders and wish them the best of luck on the racing track. Have a Great Run!
