Hutch Sri Lanka Super Series 2018 launched
The 2018 motor-racing season for the Sri Lanka Super Series Championship, will flag off with the Fox Hill Supercross on April 21 in Diyatalawa.
The 2018 edition of Sri Lanka Super Series will be sponsored by Hutch and the series will be a collaborative effort of the Asian Motor Racing Club (AMRC) and the Sri Lanka Association of Racing Drivers and Riders (SLARDAR).
The ten racing events of the Hutch Sri Lanka Super Series 2018 will include the Katukurunda Circuit Meet, Fox Hill Supercross, Walawe Supercross, Kanway Auto Drome Circuit Meet, Colombo Supercross, Cavalry Supercross, Commando Challenge Supercross, Lions Top Speed Katukurunda Circuit Meet, Pannala Night Races, Kanway Auto Drome Circuit Meet only for motorcycles and Katukurunda Circuit Meet II.
The season will officially end in November with the awards ceremony.
For the first time in Sri Lanka, two Rookie Cup events for both cars and bikes will be introduced.
They are the McLaren Formula Rookies Cup for novice drivers and the Honda One Make Series for riders.
The two Rookie events are set to be held at Katukurunda and Pannala and in addition two Rookie bike events will be held at the Mirigama Circuit as part of Super Series Championship.
The objective of these two races is to provide the much-needed racing experience to new race drivers and riders and to pave the way for local racing talent to excel at regional and global level.
SLARDAR has already given its nod to support a ‘Tri Nation Championship’ organised by the World controlling body, the FIM, and also initiated in bringing down the Asian Super Motard Championship in Mirigama.
Across the ten main events, Sri Lanka’s finest drivers and riders will battle it out to be crowned the ‘Champion Driver’ and ‘Champion Rider’ by the end of the year.
The Champion Driver and the Champion Rider will receive a brand new car each courtesy of Maxxis Tyres and co-sponsored by Mobil as the Lubricant Partner as well as Promowatch, the Event Partner.
Additionally, the two winners of the second most popular support race events classes in cars and motorcycles in the supporting events – the Ford Laser/Mazda 1500cc and the Super Motard Open – will receive a brand new Honda Unicorn motorcycle each courtesy of Stafford Motors.
