Everybody was discussing about her rallying skills at the Kari Motor Speedway track Coimbatore, the young girl rider quite fittingly won the first national race for girls in the MRF-MMSC Indian National motorcycle championship 2017

In the first race in the stock bikes up to 165cc category, Aishwarya got off to a poor start and briefly slid to third before recovering to take the lead.

She was involved in a close fight with Kalyani Potekar (Madhya Pradesh, Speed Up Racing), who sneaked ahead in the last lap before committing an error at turns three and four to lose out on the top spot.

Chennai s Alisha Abdullah (Alisha Abdullah Racing Academy) finished third.

“I had a very bad start. I don t know what happened but I managed to regain my track position. I had a tough battle with Kalyani and in the last lap, I managed to close the door on her and it gave me just enough breathing space to win the race,” said Aishwarya who later won the TVS girls’ race, a support event.

Now, Aishwarya has got her eyes firmly set on the Dakar Rally. “I plan to do it by 2020. I am preparing hard for it. I need to be really fit and I am just getting there.

“I want to train in Spain. I have been giving my 100% and I will continue to do so till the doors to Dakar open for me,” she added.
