Speaking to exclusively to Ceylon today Large Minority Co-founder Julian Carnall said, this year it is the best yet as we have seen sufficient potential to have two adventure runs instead of the usual one that we used to do.

It is becoming a more the 'in thing' for the adventure seekers to do now. With the Tuk it is the best way to experience the country . As anyone locally has ridden in one sometime or the other one just cannot beat the experience. We now see more people wanting to come and experience this. We will be having another one later this year covering a different route.

 

 

Founder One Step 4ward, Johnny Ward commenting on the Tuk Tuk rally said, it is a very good product and I can see this taking off in popularity all over this is the best way to see a country.

The participants can expect even more ,remote scenic and challenging roads. The fact that 10 percent of the proceeds will be given to charity.
Commenting on the program Conaissance de Ceylan, Chairman, Chandra Wickramasinghe said, this event has been becoming more popular year on year. The demand has grown to a point that this year we will be have two rallys. We also more teams participating and we will be organizing more adventurous routes for them.

 

 

The self-drive TukTuk ,Challenge will give teams of two or three a close up 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 organizations.

Further speaking of the Tuk Tuk Challenge Conaissance de Ceylan General Manager, Anushka Perera said, This is a new concept where the tourist can get to know the real country. They do not always stay in 5star hotels during this excursion. They have to drive their own Tuks, which is an experience in its' own self.
