Petronas TVS Racing factory rider, Aishwarya Pissay, the only FIM World Cupper from India is all set for the final round of the FMSCI National Rally Championship (INRC-2w) 2022.
The Bengaluru racing star, is eyeing her record sixth consecutive National Rally crown when the action begins after a gap of over two months with the Rally of Nashik, the sixth and final round of the FMSCI National Racing Championship - 2W 2022 here on Sunday.
The 2019 FIM Bajas World Cup champion in the Ladies class, after her brief stint in the 'Big Boss Kannada', was back in November to do what she loves the most - biking and won the fifth round in Pune to set up a grand finale. Later, the final round here was put off and the multiple-National title holder, Aishwarya Pissay is leading the championship table in her class, despite missing a round earlier, and is raring to go to defend her title once again. She has put in over a month's training on her reliable TVS TR 200R, including on-tarmac sessions, and is ready for the final hurrah.
Supported by TVS Racing, Aishwarya, who is also backed by Micro Labs, IIFL and Surana College, won the first round in Chikkamagaluru by a mile after which the 27-year-old missed the second round. Pissay then came back strongly to reclaim the title lead with splendid victories in the next three rounds in Coimbatore, Bengaluru, and Pune respectively.
"I am eagerly waiting to get back into competitive racing. The terrain will be broken tarmac and very technical. I have trained hard during this long break on my much-accomplished TVS TR 200R that is based on the TVS Apache RTR 200. I thoroughly enjoyed riding the motorcycle, all thanks to which I am going strong into the last race of the season. I will be giving my 100 per cent to win one more National title," said the talented Bengaluru rider.
The MRF Rally of Nashik will have a 17.5 Km Special Stage (SS) run thrice from Nandgaon Kolikharwal, all in the forward direction, for a combined competitive distance of over 52.5 km, mostly broken tarmac. Along with a transport section of about 70 km, the total rally distance will be 122.5 km. (ANI)
