Rana primed to triumph in Raid de Himalaya

Eight-time winner of Raid de Himalaya, one of the world’s toughest off-road motor rallies, Suresh Rana and navigator Ashwin Naik, are overwhelming favourites in the four-wheeler X-treme category.

The 15th edition of ‘Raid’, organised by the Shimla-based Himalayan Motorsport Association (HMA), will conclude in Leh on October 12 after covering Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, organisers said on Saturday.

It will begin from the Himachal Pradesh capital on Sunday.

“This time too I am aiming to retain the title,” Rana said. Naik and Rana were together during the 2010 and 2011 Raids too. The former is from Mangalore and the latter from Manali. Rana, who has won the Raid five consecutive times, will be driving a Grand Vitara.
