It’s a great Honour to hold office as the President of the most prestigious and premier Motor Racing Sports Club in Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka Association of Racing Drivers and Riders (SLARDAR) as our club is celebrating our 35th year this year. SLARDAR has been in forefront changing the landscape of Motor racing in with the introduction of Supercross events to Sri Lanka. With this new introduction of Supercross race events the level of competition, enthusiasm and standards of Drivers and Riders improved tremendously and our club once again stepped in and initiated and launched Championship Race meets as a reward our Drivers and Riders.
This year’s Championship “Hutch Sri Lanka Super Series 2018” will get in to the history books as the only Motor Race Championship ever to award two Motor Cars, awarded to the best Driver and Best Rider of the Super Championship event and Two Motor Cycles to the two supporting Bike and Car event.
Our club takes pride in associating “Cavalry Supercross 2018” as a part of most rewarding Motor Racing Championship ever to be launched, the “Hutch Sri Lanka Super Series 2018”.
Cavalry Supercross track has held many race battles and has won the hearts from not only of the Sri Lankan drivers and Riders but of those who participated from overseas. I have competed at Cavalry at its maiden event eight years ago and have witnessed the fast development of this track year on year and today, Cavalry Supercross has become the benchmark in all aspect of Supercross Racing in our country. All these achievements was only possible due to the consistently and commitment from Sri Lanka Army. We are grateful to Colonel Commandant Major General SDT Liyanage for his unwavering support and guidance. We value the commitment and dedication of Chairman organizing committee Cavalry Supercross 2018 Major General IP Ranasinghe without which this event wouldn’t have been a possible.
I must thank Brigade Commander Armoured Brigade, Brigadier MKS Silva and Centre Commandant Regimental Centre Armoured Corps Brigadier GD Sooriyabandara for meticulous planning, driving and guiding the entire team I must thank the SLARDAR committee members for their valuable inputs, dedication and time.
Wish best of luck and look forward for an exciting race weekend at Cavalry.
President - SLARDAR
