Harith, Rajendra and Imran were in excellent form and outclassed the competition with their performance. It was also heartening to see Nataraj, who was leading the championship till the last stage, put up a good show despite injury. This strong performance will boost the confidence of our racers as they go into the final round of the championship.”
