Deheragoda drags himself back to the reckoning


One time a master of speed, Dinesh Deheragoda, shifted back to his usual gear reckoning with a splendid show at Cavalry Super Cross, to win both of SL GT Cars (Up to 3500 CC) events on Sunday.

Driving a Mitsubishi Evolution IX, Deheragoda took good starts in both races and maintained his lead throughout the races. He was ably chased by Pasindu Peiris but the raining SLARDAR driving champion, Peiris, had to do a bitter battle with Aravinda Premadasa for the second place.

Premadasa, who is striving for a win in the Super Car event in the last few races of SLARDAR Championship, showed great character and skill, before going out of the track, just 200 meters away from the chequered flag.

It was a real bad day in office for Sri Lankan Motor Cross hero, Gayan Sandaruwan. He fell three times in two races and once his engine stopped as he was about to overtake the race leader Tomoya Suzuk.

The raining riding champion, Sandaruwan, is fighting hard to retain his place this year against a much seasoned Japanese rider Suzuk. To matters worse, the two Indian riders also kept Sandaruwan at bay despite endless falls and chases by the Sri Lankan.

Suzuk, riding a Honda CRF, a similar bike to the one that Sandaruwan is riding, always took a flatter and longer jumps than others to maintain the lead while young Shehan C. Adhikari entering the fray of top level riders.

The next SLARDAR event, the Gunners Super Cross, will be held at Minneriya on July 10th.
