Walawe Supercross 2018
8th Edition of the ‘Walawe Supercross'
The Sri Lanka Motor Cycle Club ( SLMCC) along with the Sri Lanka Army Electrical & Mechanical Engineering Regiment (SLEME)
has finalized arrangements to conduct the 8th Edition of the ‘Walawe Supercross’ for motor cars & motor cycles at the Udawalawe Super Cross Track in Sevanagala on 12 & 13 May 2018.
In the past Seven years, this event attracted a record crowd, fulfilling a long-felt need for motor racing in this province which inspired people in Sabaragamuwa after establishing a new culture of motor racing.
The UdaWalawe National Wildlife Park is a major eco-tourism village which is supposed to be one of the best parks to view elephants. It has become a holiday resort, and with this in mind, the SLMCC with Sri Lanka Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Regiment are making every effort to make this event a grand success in this year too.
Walawe Supercross racing event was initiated by the Electric and Mechanical Engineering Regiment of the Sri Lanka Army in 2011 for the welfare of the families of the soldiers who laid down their lives, soldiers of the regiment who lost their limbs while in action, and to raise funds for the regiment’s welfare works.
The unique feature of this racing track is that spectators can view the whole racing track from one point. The racing track is 170 metres long and 30 metres wide with five bends in a slope terrain. The organizers claim that this racing track has been upgraded as the best gravel racing track in the island.
