India's Aravind KP and Abdul Wahid Tanveer will lead Sherco TVS Factory's four-member rider squad in the PanAfrica Rally in Morocco starting September 8-15, 2018. The team also has the French brother duo of Michael and Adrien Metge, a statement said on Monday.
This will be the first rally of the Pre-Dakar series for Aravind, who has recovered completely from his injury. After the successful completion of the Merzouga Rally last year, this will be Tanveer's debut at the PanAfrica Rally.
The PanAfrica Rally, characterised by technical, fast and sandy tracks, is designed to test road-book navigation. The rally is organized in the high dunes of the Sahara Desert, where the soaring temperatures is only one of the several harsh conditions that the racers will have to battle. The Rally is seen as a learning ground for the teams and racers as they gear up for Dakar Rally in January next year.
