The defending champion from Bengaluru continued her strong form finishing well-ahead of competitors in her class and registering another top-15 finish overall.
Excited after the win, Aishwarya “aid, “It may not be a high-speed rally, like the other rounds, but the beautiful coffee e’tates’ terrain is technically challenging with plenty of tricky corners. It was fun taming my motorcycle through these demanding stages. My team at TVS Racing has done a commendable job in preparing Apache RTR 200 rally-built bike for this terrain, and I am looking to retain my dominance in the upcoming r”unds.”
The champion rider claimed a solid win at Hampi and went on to take another facile victory in Round 2 at Bengaluru, where she conquered the slushy terrain and now leads the table in the woman’s category with her fourth consecutive win.
