Today the Sri Lanka Association of Racing Drivers and Riders turns 37 years old.
Amidst this milestone, the world is currently witnessing an unprecedented challenge brought by the
deadly COVID-19 virus, which has seen the indefinite postponement of some of the greatest
international sporting events. SLARDAR took a very early proactive decision to cancel the launch of the
eagerly awaited HUTCH Sri Lanka Super Series 2020 Championship, and freeze our race calendar, until
the situation is further assessed and brought under control.
Even as our 37-year commemoration is a good reason to celebrate, we sincerely urge you to refrain
from any social gatherings and strictly adhere to the advice of the government health authorities and
security forces that have been tasked to protect you, your loved ones, and our nation from this deadly
The Executive Committee of SLARDAR is continually monitoring and assessing the current situation daily,
and will communicate any further updates impacting motorsports. Until then please keep safe.
