If you think F1 and MotoGP are the only racing events in town, think again!

There’s a whole new world of racing out there, and it’s not what you might expect.

Enter Tuk-tuk racing – yes, Tuk-tuk racing.

Those decent-looking three-wheeled vehicles you see zipping around the streets of Asia have been transformed into speed demons in the Tuk-tuk Tournament.

This two-week event is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.

It’s a mix of independent travel and group competition, where teams are armed with rules, maps, and an app to unlock the secrets of Sri Lanka.

This competition is all about you and your team, strategizing and charting your own course around the island, collecting points along the way.

And of course, there are mandatory stops for parties to swap stories and celebrate life.

But Tuk-tuk racing isn’t just about the thrill of the chase. It’s like a big festival taking place for two weeks.

Teams, decked out in costumes aboard their trusty three-wheeled chariots, battle roads, traffic, and even the occasional elephant as they race to victory.

If you think it’s easy to win the race, well, think again.

In Tuk-tuk racing, it’s not just the vehicle that’s unique, there’s teamwork involved.

Unlike traditional racing, where one driver pilots their own vehicle, in Tuk-tuk racing, one vehicle often has multiple teammates.

These teammates strategically shift their weights based on the terrain, all while coordinating with their teammates to maintain balance and speed.

It’s a challenging task that requires quick thinking and seamless coordination.

And don’t think Tuk-tuk racing is just a random idea dreamed up by a few folks.

It’s an official race, complete with big-name sponsors like Red Bull and Castrol.

So if you’re someone always craving some adrenaline-pumping action, forget about the traditional races and consider hopping into a Tuk-tuk instead.

After all, who wouldn’t love exploring the mountains and jungles, encountering wild animals along the way?

It’s a race that is way more adventurous than most sports out there.
