A glorious second spot for the team’s rider C.S.Santhosh…
After having a very impressive first leg, and taking the warmth and spirit further ahead through the Indian Baja 2018, the only ‘Dakar Challenge’ rally in the country, team Hero Motorsports Team Rally rider CS Santosh finally grabs a glorious second position as the motorsports event comes to a close in Jaisalmer. He also has managed to maintain the team’s 100 percent finish record at the Event by hitting the finish ramp at Majid ki Basti in jaisalmer, during the final leg of the rally.
The successful completion of the 274 km run marks another milestone for the team . The closing stage of the rally went rather smooth compared to the fast-paced first day as the competitors had to tackle a hard pack terrain due to heavy rain the previous night. A total of about 208 kms were run, divided into three special stages in the desert of Sam.
Currently gearing up for the the upcoming INCA Rally in Peru where he will be leading the charge and carry forward the team’s ‘Road to Dakar 2019’ campaign, CS Santosh told the media: “I am glad to cross the finish line of India Baja to be on the podium after a tough race with great competition and challenging weather conditions. This is the first race on home soil where I am walking away healthy in the past three years and that is a big positive I take forward going into the final months before Dakar.
