The Thero expressed these views when members of the Kandy Heritage Protection Foundation met him today.
He said it was not suitable to hold car races in a small city like Kandy.
“We expressed our displeasure at holding night races in Kandy for several years. We requested the authorities not to do this. But the organisers will not pay heed to us,” the Thero said.
Members of the Kandy Heritage Protection Foundation handed over a petition to the Ven. Buddharakkitha Thera regarding the matter.
