    Well thats how it is any where is the world... it was really difficult for the police to control the crowd due to all the ignorant people present at the event.

    The races are very good and could improve more.
    See the amount of sand on the track and people in un safe psotions. This need to be remadied.

    Somewhat like a Roman circus.

    j Sunday, 18 December 2011 10:05 AM

    who paid the cost

    Fair N Square Sunday, 18 December 2011 11:13 AM

    Good event at a bad location. All car races need to be held in tracks with all due safety measures taken. YOU CANNOT PUT VALUE ON A LIFE".... What IF a tragedy unf9olded and lives were lost or people were maimed for life? THEY shouldnt have granted permission in the 1st place.....Just for the entretainment of a few PUBLIC shpuld not be in onvenienced..... It was the PUBLIC road and people had to spend money to see what was happening in a Public road... NOT fair... Hold em in places secure and private... price the tickets at fancy prices... let who wanst to pay go watch... closin of public roads for events like this is UNACCAPTABLE.... ya am all for sports....... but a critic as well..

    This is a joke. All are fools. We are now suffering from lack of power, health, jobs and cost of living. Those who have orgnized the event has no brains. Now they makeing shirts for hungry dogs.

    jeeva Sunday, 18 December 2011 12:25 PM

    very important for srilanka now.....what a joke

    Ren Sunday, 18 December 2011 12:59 PM

    As usual sri lankans have to talk negative. This is the first time we have had it after a long period of only "bomb talks". Give Sri lanka a chance.

    I was very happy to be at the night races and specially at the VIP Lounge of EZY Racing which was a tireless effort taken care of by Sharaz Hamzadeen and his ever loving racing crew who had been day and night getting the lounge done up and his motor technicians getting the cars tuned up which ultimately gave good results specially in the 1600 and GT classes. The best fight was between EZY Racing guy Pasindu Peiris with Ashan Silva which finally Pasindu won. Also like to thank the organizers for having taken so much pain in getting this organized and not forgetting President Mahinda Rajapakse's son Yositha who did do get the approval to hold this night race. Look forward for better arrangements next year too and also for more and more races in the future.

    Najmudeen Sunday, 18 December 2011 01:33 PM

    Look forward to a better organized night race next year too.

    safety man Sunday, 18 December 2011 05:44 AM

    it looks really unsafe for the spectators.. if a car skids off the bend.. alot of people can get badly hurt

    Lamaya Sunday, 18 December 2011 05:43 AM

    i am proud to say that I was there! It was an amazing and well organized event. It was 9 hours long and people were there even at 6am watching the event.
