I am hereby pleased to give you the “Cream” of the event at the recent Speed Championship 2011 – Round 3 races.
What you see above are the Honda Civic’s that run in the SL H upto 1600cc event as they wait for the OK to head out on track.
But firstly it was the Mini’s that run in the SL – A upto 1050cc event to race.
Here they are on the grid. Up front is Kamal Yahatugoda in an Austin Mini 1000, followed by Hafiz Cader in an Austin Mini 1050 and right behind him is Michael Wijesuriya in a Nissan March 1000.

It was green and they were off!
