The premier event of the Sri Lankan Racing calendar, Fox hill Super cross will be celebrating the 25th edition this Saturday (22nd) at the Fox hill racetrack in Diyatalawa.

Initiated in the year 1993 as the inaugural racing event of the Island, Foxhill Supercross has come leaps and bounds in the last 25 years and is considered as the most looked forward to event in the motor racing calendar. The Diyathalawa track is a unique and a challenging 2km track which requires not only machine power but tremendous skill to complete the race. From its inception the infamous track has seen quite a few changes making it faster but safer for the competitors providing the large crowds that gather with a thrilling and a memorable experience as well.
While offering an unparalleled experience to the motor sporting enthusiasts who gather in large numbers to witness one of the biggest sporting events in the country, the event also serves the noble cause of raising funds for the enhancement of infrastructure and facilities at the Military Academy for the training of young officers who are the future guardians of the country.
