Sherco TVS Rally Factory Team has announced Indian rally rider Aishwarya Pissay will be joining the team for the Baja Aragon rally later this year. The Baja Aragon rally scheduled between July 20-22, 2018, in Teruel, Spain, marks the international rally debut of Pissay in the sport. The 22-year-old racer racer will be joining a four member squad comprising brothers Adrien Metge and Michael Metge from France, as well as Spaniard Lorenzo Santolino. The achievement is also monumental as Aishwarya becomes the first Indian woman factory racer to compete in the Baja World Rally.


Speaking about making her international rally debut, TVS Factory racer, Aishwarya Pissay said, "This will be my first international Rally and I am overwhelmed as well as grateful to TVS Racing for giving me this opportunity. The Baja Aragon is a good training ground for any racer who has their sights set on the Dakar, as it tests their mettle among international talent. I am excited to race alongside experienced International Champions from the Sherco TVS Rally Factory Team. The prospect of finally experiencing the RTR 450 is daunting but I look forward to packing time on the motorcycle and perfecting my technique."


Aishwarya Pissay has been a part of a number of Indian rally championships and has quickly honed her skills on the two-wheels with every rally. In 2017 alone, Pissay participated and won a number of rallies including Raid De Himalaya 2017, Dakshin Dare 2017, Indian National Rally Championship (INRC), 2017 and TVS Apache Ladies One Make Championship 2017.
