Sri Lanka Telecom PLC has partnered with Sri Lanka Karting Circuit, Bandaragama (SLKC) to promote the ‘SLT Speedup Karting Challenge 2019’ to provide the public with a novel sporting experience.

Aligning with the widely acclaimed ‘SLT Speed Up’ programme started in 2015, the Karting Challenge will be taking place at Bandaragama on July 13 from 9 a.m. onwards.

Teams willing to accept this challenge and be part of an astonishing experience can still register for the event. SLT’s main objective of being the Title Sponsor of this event is to address the increasing demand for activity-based leisure experiences while contributing to expand the market segment of sport tourism which is an emerging sector with promising benefits for the nation. The event is organized by the Ceylon Motor Sports Club to ensure international standards.

Sri Lanka Telecom PLC commenced the ‘SLT Speed up Cycle Sawariya’ in 2015 with a clear view of exposing and recognizing the talents in the field of cycling, which was greatly admired by the youth. Following the same theme ‘SLT Speed up’, the Southern Eliyakanda Hill Climb 2019 was held recently at Browns Hill in Matara with 12 motor cycle events and 21 motor car events. The present Karting Challenge will be conducted based on the success of the previous events in the Speed-up series.

All necessary arrangements have been made by the company to provide both the players and the spectators with an exciting sporting experience at SLKC which is the only activity-based leisure and entertainment destination of this kind in the country.

SLKC has been awarded the Commission Internationale de Karting/Federation Internationale De L’Automobile (CIK/FIA) accreditation making it the only karting track in South Asia to get this certification and to be homologated to international standards.

The circuit is owned and operated by David Pieris Racing and Leisure (Pvt) Ltd a member of the David Pieris Group of Companies.
