Chennai: The year 2017 is proving to be the ‘year of Honda’ as team Honda Ten10 stole the show by securing the maximum number of podium finishes.

Rajiv Sethu who has been the star of the show throughout the tournament was content and relaxed at the interaction and when asked about his most memorable moment in the race said “Today’s memorable moment will just last till the next race, what I will remember though is the effort my team has put behind the race. When I race I always remember the fact that it’s not me I’m racing for but it’s for my team.”
The crew puts in a lot of effort and hard work to achieve the goals they have set for themselves.
After dominating the National Two Wheeler Championship Round 2 Honda is more than optimistic about the next event to come and have their eyes set on taking home the cup this season.
