‘SLARDAR 1000 Rally’ moves on

MOTOR RALLY: The SLARDAR 1000 Rally for the year 2007 commenced yesterday from Buddhadasa Ground, Kotte. The Drivers were flagged off by Sarath Kongahage, Director Editorial, Lake House.

Thirty five drivers have entered the event which they have to cover a distance of 1000 kilometres. The drivers with their co-drivers are expected to reach Arachchikattuwa around midnight for fuelling and for the break.

After one hour stay they will proceed towards Maduruoya to complete the first stage of the rally at around 8.00 a.m.

Before reaching Maduruoya they will have to pass through jungles and in between few water crossings which is known as off road challenges. The competitors who complete the first stage successfully after a rest set off on Saturday on their return journey at 8.00 p.m.

This stage will be the most strenuous and difficult part of the Rally where they will have to overcome many hurdles before they reach Kandy for the break for fuelling and rest. Drivers will continue their journey to Colombo for the finish at Buddhadasa Stadium, Kotte.

In the past none of the drivers were able to win the event twice Rizvi Farook, Iqbal Hassan, Mansoor, Themiya Abeywickrama and Shafraz Junaid are the top contenders to grab honours in this years event.

Rizvi who has been a driver has competed in many different categories including formulas and Iqbal and Munsoor too with many wins under their belts should battle it out for honours.

Meanwhile Themiya Abeywickrema too is a driver with lots of experience in competing in rallies will be a tough opposition for other drivers. All these drivers expect the fullest co-operation from the co-drivers to achieve success.

Shafraz Junaid who has been very familiar with motorcycles and also won many events on his two wheeler will enter the fray in four-wheelers. He could pose a big threat to all experienced competitors.

All competitors will drive from wheel vehicles. A keen tussle could be expected at both days.
