Earlier this week, Bengaluru-based biker Aishwarya Pissay made history in Hungary by becoming the first Indian to win a world title in motorsports. She is India’s first FIM World Cup Champion in women’s category. She beat Portugal’s Rita Vieira in the final leg by 4 points.
Aishwarya hopes to next participate in the Dakar Rally, which is considered the world’s most difficult cross-country race.
Aishwarya’s achievement is indeed a milestone for Indian women in this fast, rough and predominately male sport event.
Apart from Aishwarya who are the other Indian women breaking stereotypes in the world of motorsports?
