Hellibees Racing Team Founder Murad Ismail said, “Not only do we now have several talented riders and drivers, but also a thrilling new look, to wow audiences and, in turn, raise the profile of our partners.

The riders won big at the Rotherham Circuit Meet 2015 with Shoel Daniel deservedly walking away with the coveted 2015’s “UD Jinadasa Challenge Trophy for Best Rider”, as well as first place finishes in the 250cc, 600cc and Open up-to-1,000cc categories.

Team Hellibees had a clean sweep win at the races held last weekend (14th & 15th November) at  SLARDAR- and AMRC-organised Pannala Circuit Meet 2015, where each and every Hellibees Racing rider and driver securing either a win or a podium finish. Kicking things off Hellibees racing rider Lathika Shamaal won first place in both the 125cc and 250cc categories while Sangeeth Suriyage came in first in 250cc Supermoto and third in 450cc Supermoto. Ned Daniel was placed second in the 250cc as well as 450cc Supermoto categories.
