Harith Noah, TVS Racing Factory Team rider said, “I am extremely happy to have arrived at the finish line of Dakar Rally 2024 at position 11, in the final stage. The main goal was to finish the line and that’s what my team and I have been preparing for. The intention was to ride consistently every day, taking one km at a time within an hour. First week started slow as expected but second week onwards I started feeling better on the bike, and started pushing myself when I felt comfortable, while navigating easily through the terrains. I surprised myself in Stage 10 with a 5th overall ranking and winning the stage for some time. But yes, I am extremely happy to be here and winning the category for first overall. Even though I got sick half-way through the rally, I made sure that I stayed on my feet and as always, it’s a great blessing to be here at the finish line.”

This is a landmark achievement for India and Harith has become an inspiration for youngsters to take up motorsports. His achievements are a true reflection of the hard work, dedication, and practice that have been put in by him as well as the team, to achieve a performance of this measure, and it has been a delight to watch him brave through the toughest rally at Dakar this year.”
