Shreya Iyer has been called by TVS racing for the upcoming two-wheeler Indian National Rally Championship. The 24-year old woman will join the ranks of Indian women racers.Shreya will begin her career with K1000, which is the first round. There will be five more rounds after this. The girl from Bengaluru, however, has no experience in competitive racing as she has not participated in any of the stage rally events so far. “I’m very passionate about riding, and it’s great to be able to do that professionally. Training has been good so far, and I intend to give it my best.
Shreya is delighted to break the stereotype as motorsport has always been considered a male-dominated sport. A factory team like TVS racing have helped to break that stereotype. Shreya will be riding in the Group B class with her new TVS Apache RTR 200.Motorsport has always been considered a male-dominated sport, but it’s actually not true. There have been so many women doing circuit racing and dirt biking. Shreya also faced resistance from her family initially when they got to know that she is interested in riding. But with time, they have supported her in her career. My parents were naturally concerned about my safety. I sat them down and talked to them. They’re okay now. They’ve always stood by me, Shreya added.
