Commenting on the occasion, Sanjay Chatterjee, General Manager Sales & Marketing, Yokohama India, said, “We recently announced Team Yokohama for 2015. A win at this early a stage is very encouraging for us. Last year, we had a podium finish in almost all the races and this year too, the start has been on a winning note.”

Team Yokohama’s lead driver Rahul Kanthraj added, “We have started the year with a win and that too with a lead of 3 minutes and 46 seconds. We hope to continue this form for the entire season in similar fashion.”

Besides the winning team, Yokohama also has driver Karna Kadur and co-driver M Chandrashekar competing in 1600cc in a Volkswagen Polo. Yokohama also supports Prithvi Dominic and his co-driver Pruthvi Ithal in the 2000cc category.
