Commenting on his performance, Aravind KP said, “The PanAfrica Rally was a huge learning ground for me. It has instilled tremendous confidence in me, considering that the overall performance of the team has been phenomenal. Over the year, I have felt closer to my Dakar motorcycle and post this rally, I now feel one with my motorcycle. It is an extremely satisfying feeling and now I look forward to the OiLibya Rally of Morocco.”
