Colombo Supercross 2017

Colombo Supercross 2017

The inaugural Colombo Supercross was flagged off to much fanfare and ceremony on 7th May 2017, at the new purpose-built gravel track situated in the premises of the Sri Lanka Navy base in Welisara. 125 racing riders and 85 drivers from across the country participated in this event, under a total of 12 motorcar and 10 motorcycle events. This inaugural round was graced by Chief Guest Eng. Karunasena Hettiarachchi. The event was conducted by the Navy Racing Club (NRC), along with the Sri Lanka Association of Racing Drivers and Riders (SLARDAR) and Asian Motor Racing Club (AMRC).

 

The car track has a length of 1.2 kilometres and incorporates more hills and drift corners compared to Foxhill; aimed at increasing the challenge to participants, while the bike track is lengthier at 1.8 kilometres and features multiple jumps and bends. The organizers claim that it includes the longest jump in any current track in Sri Lanka. The track is also laid out in such a way that the spectators can view the action at a higher ground level which will increase the thrill factor.

 

Rear Admiral Sirimevan Ranasinghe revealed that the track work was commenced in 2012, and it was designed by famous motorbike racing personality Gayan Sandaruwan, and Hans Ralf Karpinsky who is known for designing other famous Supercross/Motorcross tracks such as Foxhill and Gajaba. The track is designed with an international focus in mind, and the aim to one day host international events. “We also intend to extend an invitation to the Asian Motocross Championship and also to conduct the South Asian Motocross Championship” said Rear Admiral Ranasinghe.

 

Ashan Silva clinched the Admiral Clancy Fernando Trophy for Best Driver after winning both prestigious SL/GT 3500cc events in his Mitsubishi Evolution. The Navy Commander’s Trophy for Best Rider was clinched by Sanuka Jayana Sandaruwan who is the brother of Gayan Sandaruwan.

 

Elsewhere, Ajith Keerthi secured victory in the SL-A Mini 7 event whilst Duminda Jayasinghe won the 1275cc Mini event. The Group J Motorcycles 50cc under 10 years was won by Minuka Rathnayake. Kushan Pieris secured a win in the Ford Laser/Mazda 1300cc event, and also won the SL-H Cars upto 1618cc event. The Subaru Legacy 2000cc “one-model” event was won by Manjula Wijesinghe, who also won the Group T&J Diesel Turbo up to 5500cc event.
