New Off Road track opens next week in Kandy

A full day's event has been organised by the Kandy Off Road and Adventure Club at its 4x4 championship which will be worked off at the newly constructed off road track at Riverside Mahaweli, Pallekelle next Saturday, February 12th at 9 a.m.

This Off Road Track at Pallekelle by the side of the Mahaweli ganga has been designed by motor racing driver Rohan Dammapala who will be the chief organiser of this competition.

The access to this new off road track is from the turn off at the Gam Udawa clock tower at Pallekelle and pass the National Ayurvedic hospital and the Open Prison Camp. The track is about one kilometre in length.

This is a dual track with a liberal dose of shish and mud uphill and downhill, boulders and a flowing stream for the extremes. It has all the ingredients to make an adventurous one. In addition to this there are ten obstructions which the drivers will have to come to terms before reaching the finish. A total of four events will be worked off which will include events for ladies, standard four-wheel drive cars, the trucks and the Extremes. This event is expected to go on till 7 p.m.

There will be also three All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) to follow the competing vehicles. In addition there will also recovery vehicles as spills are aplenty in championship such as this.

Already a number of ladies have entered to participate and around 40 male drivers will vie for honours.
