CS Santhosh is now a part of Hero Motorsport Team Rally
The expertise of India’s top, and by far best off-road rider, C S Santhosh has teamed up with newly formed motorcycle rally team of India’s most successful two-wheeler company, Hero MotoCorp. This new motorcycle rally team is a joint venture of Hero Motocorp and German off-road racing specialist Speedbrain GmBH, to enter into the motorcycle rallying world. This new Joint Venture has named their new team as Hero Motorsport Team Rally.
The Hero Motorsport Team Rally will participate in several international rallies in their new Hero pallium. And later this month, in Merzouga Rally, (a series of Dakar Race) the Hero Motorsport team will make its debut in Morocco. CS Santhosh will lead this new racing team campaign, and will field its team in the 2017 Dakar Rally. An upgraded version of Speedbrain 450 rally bike will be used for all future rallies participated by the Hero Motocorp racing team.
Hero Motorsport Team Rally is founded with the co-partnership of newly founded Hero Centre of Innovation and Technology.
The new rally team will be spearheaded by Wolfgang Fischer, Managing Director, Speedbrain. Dr. Markus Braunsperger who works as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Hero MotoCorp, will also be responsible for developing the racing machines. Testing and development of future models will be assisted by Hero Motorsports Teal Rally’s race data. With such racing expertise on board, we can expect some quicker and meaner machines from Hero Motorcorp soon.
