Dyan Seneviratne

Email :

As a kid, Dyan had a sizeable collection of Dinky, Corgi and Matchbox model cars. His elder brother SK [Sene] Seneviratne with his winning exploits at the Monsoon Reliability Trials in the mid 1960s fascinated Dyan. Subsequently, he was an eager participant at both Mahagastotte & Radella Hill Climbs in the late 80s and early 90s. He was a commentator at motor racing events at Katukurunda & Pannala. Dyan has been a regular columnist for MOTOR magazine with his ‘Snippets’ for 18 long years – even doing monthly Test Drives and follow up reports apart from interviewing motor enthusiasts. He is a tea plantation management specialist by profession, involved in the Tea Industry for more than five decades.
