The hills of Sepang are alive again with MSS!

Published on July 3rd, 2011

The hills of Sepang are again alive with the sound of vrooming engines as the Malaysian Super Series (MSS) resumes with today’s big race in round three for cars and round two for bikes after a fast and frenetic qualifying session yesterday.

Sri Lankan speed demon, Dilantha Malagamuwa hopes of a hatrick in the GT Open did not go as planned after he set a fourth best time of the day, 2:17.702 on his second choice car, a Porsche 997.

It will be uphill struggle for the popular Sri Lankan, who was the first non Japanese Asian to race in Formula Nippon, to continue his winning streak as he finished 7.588 behind Ian Mao who set the fastest lap of 2:10.114. “I am running an old car here, a Porsche 997 GT3 Cup. I left my Lamborghini GT3 in Japan for the Asian GT.

“I am not that confident of winning here as the other cars are really fast, my aim is just to collect points for this race and maintain my lead,” said the Sri Lankan who runs a race school here and now resides in Malaysia.

Overall champion in 2006 and 2007 for the Supercar Championship, Dilantha, who was a class above his rivals in the MSS opening round at Sepang’s F1 weekend in April and the second round nearing the end of April, wants to consolidate his lead in Round 3 to maintain a gap over his rivals especially the defending champion Mok Weng Sun of Singapore.
