Exciting finish in prospect

MAK K-1000 rally on Sunday

Arvind, in his debut INRC season, leads the championship at 56 points while Pramod trails him by just four points with another TVS rider Natraj R placed third at 45 points.
“Being my debut season I could not have asked for anything more,” said Arvind a press conference here on Friday. “Despite TVS being the only motor works team, competition has been very intense throughout the last three races and I don’t think it would any different in the fourth and final round on Sunday.”

Bright start
Joshua made a bright start to the season posting victories in the opening two rounds before allowing the advantage slip after ending fourth in the previous round, handing Arvind the lead. Arvind, who was runner-up to Joshua in R1 and R2, finally scored his maiden victory in round three in Chikmagalur.

Healthy competition
Praising the healthy competition within the team, Joshua said the spirits were very high. “With only one motor works team participating, its obvious only privateers are going to test us.

“However, all the riders in TVS have got the same quality vehicle and there have been no team orders has such. All of us hope to have some fun at Siddlaghatta.”
Meanwhile, privateer Harish S has already sealed the title in the two-stroke category with 50 points with Nanda Gopal at a distant second on 27.
Current points position: Overall standings: Arvind KP (TVS Racing) 56 points, 1; Joshua Pramod 52, 2; Natraj R 45, 3. Two-stroke: Harish S 50, 1; Nanda Gopal 27, 2; Kailash R 23, 3.
