Racing runs in the Abdullah family. Alisha`s father was a seven time national motorbike champion.

The only speed breaker to this exciting career is the complete lack of sponsorship. But for now parental support is just about enough to help her chase her passion on her bike.



Yamaha, Hero Honda and TVS.. could you cut down on the fees of John, Dhoni and Hrithik by a wee bit and support this wonderful talent..?? Contribution from Bajaj would be welcome too.

Anybody game..??

YOU GO GIRL !!!!

Why cant TVS sponser her, it will definitely bring some female crowds to their Scootys at least.

But very encouraging to see that her parents are supporting her.
And also Thanks to IBN for featuring her
