Sunny, a top contender for the Raid crown, faced engine trouble in the third competitive stage of the event today from Chimni to Khanag. He was driving a Mahindra XUV for Team Mahindra at the event.

“I am certainly disappointed,” said Sidhu.

Meanwhile, the day one of the Raid saw as many as four mishaps.
