Added in: News


Motorsport is a dangerous affair, more so if you are on two-wheels. Every year many heroes suffer broken bones and torn ligaments while some lose their lives. One of the racers to have lost their lives in the recent times is Subhamoy Paul.

Paul, who was competing in the Moto-Quads Xtreme category of the 2016 Raid de Himalaya, was a seasoned rider with a vast experience in motorsports. The 49-year-old veteran was covering the Losar to Gramphoo stage of the race over Kunzum pass on day three of the motoring event when he lost control of his KTM EXC 500 (numbered 208 in the rally) and suffered severe head injuries. He was airlifted to Manali where he was declared dead on arrival.


Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends. The rally was called off after the accident. The 18th edition of Maruti Suzuki Raid De Himalaya was flagged off on October 8, 2016. That being said, the organisers may continue with the time speed and distance (TSD) format.
