TVS Racing and I have a strong relationship and I thank them for bestowing their faith in my abilities. The next few months of preparation with the Sherco-TVS crew will be crucial as I train on what it takes to participate in Dakar Rally 2017." says Aravind KP
Arvind Pangaonkar, Head of Team TVS Racing, said, “Dakar Rally is the epitome of high endurance racing and we are happy to announce that Aravind KP will be a part of the team this year. Aravind has been riding for TVS Racing for the past 10 years and seeing his skills and performance records, racing at Dakar Rally was just a matter of time. Our partner Sherco is equally excited about having an Indian rider in Aravind on board and is geared up to give him the best training both in navigation and riding in sand dunes for Dakar Rally 2017.”
