Amãna Takaful Strategic Partner for CEAT SLADA Championship 2014
Amãna Takaful, the only fully fledged Takaful operation in the country and the flag bearer of the Takaful way of insurance in Sri Lanka extended its partnership with the Sri Lanka Auto-sports Drivers’ Association (SLADA) for the second consecutive year.
Commenting on the partnership with SLADA, Adel Hashim, General Manager, Sales and Marketing Amãna Takaful, stated, “It has been a very exciting experience for us to associate ourselves with SLADA. Also the belief that ‘driving fast gives a thrill in the race, while driving safe gives a thrill on the road’ communicates a clear message of responsible driving to the public. We need to encourage individuals to support safe driving on our roads as road accidents and fatalities are increasing in the country and leaving many people helpless. Through this association we are able to help a fast growing sport – which also conveys safety first on the road.”
Associated with the Sri Lanka Army, Sri Lanka Military Academy and Sri Lanka Air Force, SLADA runs six popular racing events in the country. Fox Hill Super Cross, Gunners Super Cross, Sigiriya Rally Cross, Cavalry Super Cross, Gajaba Super Cross and Rotherham Circuit are included in SLADA’s prestigious portfolio.
Commenting on the partnership with Amãna Takaful, Yoga Perera, President, SLADA, stated, “SLADA is striving to reach international racing standards. SLADA is developing local talent to compete in international races while attracting international riders and drivers to take part in local races. We opted for Amãna Takaful as our insurance partner, as we supremely believe that Amãna Takaful has the ability to handle the risk. Amãna Takaful has displayed speed, reliability and world class service. Therefore SLADA was more than happy to continue this partnership in the coming year as well.”
