While coming to the 2nd round, Harith Noah shows that he is the most talented in the class of SX-1 by becoming 1st in both the motos in the category of SX-1.

joker lane in the race was really interesting with the whoop section included. From the practice day itself, i feel way better than 1st round. Dad helped to check out the time taken in the joker lane so according to that decided in the race when i should go through. In the first moto, I had a really good start but front end washed away in the first corner itself. So I took the joker lane in the first lap itself so i can push the rest of the laps. In the 2nd moto , I was really confident. I got the start in the 4th position, became 2nd in the second corner and in the same lap itself I overtake and came first. Then I pushed a little bit for the safe lead. I am very satisfied while considering the time I had on the bike was very less. For the next race, I will have more time on the bike. The 3rd round in Jaipur will be fun as it is sand” said the 2nd round overall champion Harith Noah.
