Formula racing tracks in SL

E-mail Print
Sri Lanka will build two Formula tracks to conduct motor races in the country, the state owned radio said.

A delegation headed by the President of the World Motor Car Racing Association, John Todd, who arrived in the country to look in to the possibility of constructing these tracks in Hambantota and Colombo, held talks with President Mahinda Rajapakse at Temple Trees yesterday.

Oh, good to have a F1 racing track but it should be build once the existing road infrastructure is well build and developed for Sri Lankans who use their own vehicles and public transport.
