Perfect Dinesh takes lead in Formula Ford standings

Dinesh Jayawardena scored perfect 20 points in two races to take the lead in the Formula Ford Post 85 event while Ashan Silva (SL H 1600 cc), Thivanka Wijesekera (Formula Mclarens 1300) and Dinesh Deheragoda (SLGT 3500cc) leading in their respective events after the second round of the Speed Racing 2011 series.

Round Two of the event was held last month and the third round of the Speed Racing 2011 series, jointly organized by Ceylon Motor Sports Club, Sri Lanka Motor Cycle, Motor Racing Association and the Asian Motor Racing Club, is scheduled to speed off at the Pannala motor racing track on Sunday.

According to an official, the second round which was held in late May drew a considerable amount of entries in both the motor car and motor bike events and this time too they have had a good response.

As usual, the popular events like SLGT cars (up to 3500 cc) and SL H cars (up to 1600 cc) along with one make classes of the Mini, Nissan March, Ford Laser, Formula Ford and the Formula Mclarens 1300 cc events are scheduled to be held during the day.

The championship will also give an opportunity for newcomers who won the Go-Karting racing event which was held recently to flex their muscles with the experience drivers in the Formula Mclarens 1300 and also the Suzuki Maruti/Alto events.

Apart from the motor car events the organizers will work off a host of motor cycle events. The organizers will implement the new rule brought in by the Sri Lanka Racing Riders Association of introducing a qualifying race in order to determine a grid position in all the motor bike events.

It has been mooted with the idea of uplifting the standards of the sport said a source of the organizing committee. The results of both categories (cars and bikes) will be taken into account for the national championship awards.
