All arrangements are set for the Colombo Night Races scheduled for December 15, this was disclosed to the media on Wednesday. According to the organizers seven Car events and four Motor Cycle events are scheduled to be run on this day.
The Colombo Night Races organized by Carlton Motor Sports Club and conducted by Asian Motor Racing Club (AMRC) and Sri Lanka Motor Cycle Club (SLMCC) will be of great interest to Motor racing fans in Sri Lanka.
The seven Car events are conducted by AMRC while the Motor Cycle events are conducted by SLMCC. It was stated by Shehan Tissera that the organizers had to cut down few events in different classes to bring Colombo Night Races to international standards as well to minimize the time factor.   
The GT-3 and the GT-4 category will be an international event which has attracted drivers from Malaysia, Indonesia and Japan. This particular race will have two races which will be of vital importance for the foreign drivers who make a big sacrifice to make this tour to our country. Both categories will be run concurrently, said Tissera.
He further said that all necessary steps have been taken for the safety of spectators by way of placing them in safe places while having a good view of the races. This was made possible as the track was extended by nearly 1.5 kilo meters. This addition of length to the track has made it a 4.5 kilo meters.
Adding further he said that with the intention of giving an opportunity for our local drivers and riders reach international standard the organizers have increased the number of laps to minimum of 12 laps for Bikes and 15 laps for Cars.
This year McLarens 1300 event is an addition to the Colombo Night Races with ten cars arriving on to the track. These will be driven by local experts as well as up and coming young drivers. VW Polo Cup Race will see seven Indian drivers in action along with three local drivers Upulwan Serasinghe, Sumanapala Mannapperuma and Romani de Silva.. It was also noted that the SL-GT Super Cars up to 3500cc race attracted the 24 drivers which is the highest recorded for a race of this nature.
