Very disappointed day for all Indian motorsports lovers our star rider CS Santosh loss the early led he made in first stage; CS had an issue with fuel cap and ran out of fuel.
Santosh said “I started with a good rhythm today, then went on with the flow in the 2nd part of the stage. I had no issues with the navigation as well.
Unlucky for me, the rear tank cap was not closed properly after refueling and I lost my rear tank fuel before I realized it. Finally, ran out of fuel 30 km short of the finish and had to wait and ask for the fuel from some of the slower riders coming at the back. In the process I lost over an hour’s time today. It was not the best day, but I take the positive that I am still in the race and that’s what counts”
In the matter of Aravind KP TVS Racing’s first Indian rider in Dakar he still maintained his position
Live timings shows that CS Santosh and Aravind KP at Positions 98 and 29 respectively in Stage 3
