Driver: Sanjay Takale
Co-Driver: Noriko Takeshita

Indian driver, Sanjay Takale, has a long involvement and passion for motorsport but has only been competing in the APRC for the last few years. It all started at the International Rally of Whangarei during 2011 in a Proton Satria Neo but he gas since then has gone from strength to strength.
In 2013 Takale won the APRC Production Cup, and after a one year hiatus from APRC in 2015 following a short illness, Takale is back and ready to get the production cup title again in 2016. He has also competed on the ice in Scandinavia and attended rally school in Wales, and with his experience on the roads throughout the Asia Pacific region, means he’ll be one to watch.
Takale is the CUSCO team-mate of New Zealand driver, Michael Young.
