Commenting on the win, Rana said, “Winning Raid De Himalaya is always rewarding and boosts my morale every year. This is my 11th win and yet the thrill and joy is just like my first. To breakthrough in these extreme weather conditions, along with driver skills one also needs a tough vehicle supported by a reliable service crew and feel privileged to have access to all this as a part of Team Maruti Suzuki Motorsport.”

Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. (Marketing) Executive vice president Tarun Garg said, “Raid De Himalaya has always been synonymous with adventure, uncertainty and extreme conditions. But this year it stepped one notch higher with the new gruelling route which challenged abilities of even the most established rallyists.”
