The Mirigama Motorcycle Race happened on the 14th of July 2019. The specialty of this event was that it was the first racing event to take place after the Easter attacks that took place on the 21st of April. It was jointly organised by three clubs: Sri Lanka Association of Racing Drivers and Riders (SLARDAR), Asian Motor Racing Club (AMRC) and Colombo Motor Sports. The event was powered by Hutch as the main sponsor.
SLARDAR was formed in July 1983 by drivers and riders associated with motor sports racing in Sri Lanka. What prompted the formation of SLARDAR was that other motor sports clubs at that time were paying scanty regard to the sport and did not heed to the genuine grievances of the competitors and the expectations of a large number of motor sport enthusiasts.
