The training academy will be organised in association with the Rajini Academy of Competitive Training
It’s never too late to start, they say. TVS Motor Company seems to be a firm believer of the saying as they have now launched a rider training academy exclusively for women riders. While there are several rider training academies in India, there isn’t one exclusively for women. TVS has now joined hands with K Rajini’s track school – Rajini Academy of Competitive Training (RACR). Rajini is a known name in the motorcycle racing scene with many accolades by his name including several National Road Racing titles and Malaysia Superbike championship.
To start with, 25 women riders will be selected to participate in a single day training and selection camp in Bangaluru on May 24. This camp will include theory sessions as well as practical application. Fifteen of these 25 women riders will then be short-listed to participate in the first ever TVS Ladies One-make Series. This selection will be based on the time recorded in a three-lap race. As they participate in the One-make races, the riders will also be trained throughout the year.
To be a part of the TVS rider training for women, participants should be over 13 years of age and must have been riding a motorcycle for at least two years. Participants will be trained on TVS’ flagship RTR 200 and the same motorcycles will also be used in the subsequent races. The official training session will commence next month and four races in the TVS Ladies One-make Series will follow.
