After a much-needed break subsequent to the completion of five stages, Stage 6 of the rally was held between Arequipa to San Juan de Marcona. The stage had a total distance of 502 km to be covered, of which 336km were timed sections. Here’s the photo gallery of Stage 6 of the 2019 Dakar Rally.
Covering a total distance of 5000 kilometres, the Dakar Rally is one of the most prestigious rally events in the world. The 2019 edition being held in the sand dunes of Peru in South America, several teams are competing for top honours in their respective class along with challenging environments.
The fifth day brought a disappointment for Hero MotoSports after CS Santosh made his exit from the race due to a severe crash after which he sustained injuries on his hip. On the other hand, Sherco TVS’ Lorenzo Santolino pushed much harder than the previous stages only to finish a commendable third in stage 5 and eleventh overall.
TVS has been in partnership with Indian Motos for the last six years. The latter handles distribution and marketing for TVS in Peru and the brands together have been growing in the country, especially in the three-wheeler segment.
TVS Motor Company has unveiled three new products in Argentina. The Hosur-based company unveiled their flagship motorcycle, the Apache RR 310 along with the Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition at Salón Internacional de la Motocicleta show in Argentina.
