Honda ladies race makes a historic debut

In a step towards achieving a greater democratisation of motorsport, and to encourage more women participation, Honda flagged-off the first-ever Honda All Ladies Race in Chennai. Amid huge cheers, 10 women from all over India took to the grid for this historic race. In the end, despite Pune’s Pooja A Dhabi best-efforts, it was Chennai’s Rihana Reya who rallied brilliantly to jump two-places from her starting position and emerged triumphant in this inaugural race. Pooja finished second while Soundari (from Chennai)
finished third.

Congratulating the winners, Prabhu Nagraj, Vice President, Customer Service, HMSI, said, “It is always Honda’s endeavour to bring new categories and excitement into the race. To democratise motorsport, and to offer the adrenaline pumping track experience to our women audiences as well, we have introduced, for the first time in Chennai, an All-Ladies Race. All 10 girls, who raced today have been trained by the Honda Racing Training Academy. I would like to specially congratulate all of them for being a part of this landmark race. The immense potential on display today, strengthens our belief in the talent that exists in the country. I would also like to congratulate all the winners and thank FMSCI for organising and supporting our efforts in India. Look forward to see you all next year with greater enthusiasm.”
