The annual ‘Walawe Supercross 2017’ the event that attracts the country’s racing enthusiasts to the Uda Walawa Supercross track at Sevanagala, Sabaragamuwa, was held this year for the seventh time with a significant difference. CBL (Ceylon Biscuits Limited) stepped forward to sponsor the children’s segment of the Supercross under its brand Ritzbury Champ creating an important milestone for the nation’s youngsters.

The children’s segment of Walawa Supercross had not had a sponsor since its inception and Ritzbury Champ, a chocolate bar popular among young people, especially teenagers was an apt product to partner the event for the first time.

Assistant Brand Manager of CBL Foods International, Saumya Fernando explained that the brand values of Ritzbury Champ were associated with winning.

He reiterated “CBL firmly espouses the belief that children who are involved in energetic extracurricular activities, in turn become mature adults who are able to contribute to their communities and the nation, in an optimal manner.

We are sponsoring this event in order to encourage children to take part. Ritzbury Champ embodies a system of values where studies are combined with participation in winning activities. Ritzbury Champ ideally stands for the inner champion in every child”

The Walawa Supercross this year was special. Renovations made to the ‘Craftsman Autodrome’ gravel track and the surrounding facilities resulted in better racing and safe viewing.
