The ‘Lanka Challenge 2011’ trishaw race started off in grand style over the weekend from the premises of Tangerine Tree Hotel, Minuwangoda. A total number of 10 teams consisting 25 international participants are engaged in the rally being held for the third consecutive year. The 12-day rickshaw challenge will give the foreign participant teams an up close and personal experience of some of the most fascinating historical sites and natural delights of the spice island, while raising money for local charities and environmental organisations. The competition will run until 30 August where the participants will travel around the country in one of the funkiest modes of transport invented by man – the humble auto-rickshaw (three-wheeler/trishaw).
