This racetrack in Mirigama is used for both motorbikes and cars.The track is 1.4 kilometre long and 30 metre wide racing track being developed in an area that spans 11 acres. It contains 7 bends altogether with 5 of them being left curves. Out of the five bends to left four prove to be a challenge to the competitors. Except for one of the remaining two bends to the right the other is not so hard to tackle. The track is in the centre of a 50-acre land which Jayantha Perera had bought two years ago for the purpose of materialising his dream. [1]
