Commenting on the team’s performance, B Selvaraj, Team Manager, TVS Racing said, “The 5th round of INRC was challenging and I am glad that the team continues to lead across three categories. 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 until the last stage, put up a good show despite an injury. This strong performance will boost the confidence of our racers as they go into the final round of the championship.”
