Imagine a 19-year-old girl from Chikmagalur ready to get into a car and race at any moment, whether on the tarmac or on dirt. That's me, Tarushi Vikram. I’m a student of BSc. Botany and Zoology at St. Joseph’s University, Bengaluru. My racing story began on dusty roads in my dad's rally gypsy in 2013. From there, I trained on the tracks in Bangalore to gear up for the Girls On Track, an event that aimed at encouraging women in motorsport at the grassroot level, in 2019.
I have successfully participated in the 2022 and 2023 seasons of the MRF MMSC (Madras Motorsports Club) FMSCI (Federation of Motorsports Club of India) Saloon Car National Championship at the Madras International Circuit, and the next season will start as early as February 2024.
This season consists of nine races, split into three race weekends, with three races each weekend. This is a Single-Make Championship comprising of identical Toyota Etios Cars.
As I gear up for the upcoming season starting in February 2024, I envision progressing to super stock categories, competing with more experienced drivers. My ultimate dream includes venturing into single-seater Formula cars or entering the challenging world of rallying.
To make my dream of racing in the championship come true, I need your help!
It will fund my race and help me become a better racer. With your sponsorship, I can make you proud. This isn't just about racing; it's about supporting a young woman in racing , breaking stereotypes and inspiring other women into the world of Motorsport. My journey will reflect positively on you, showing your commitment to diversity and supporting dreams in racing.
MY ACHIEVEMENTS AT A GLANCE:
Me, setting the fastest lap at the MRF Championship race track.
I did my ICSE schooling at the Vidyashilp Academy in Bengaluru in 2020 and then studied at the Mallya Aditi International School from 2020 to 2022. Currently, I’m in my 2nd year of BSc. Zoology and Botany at St. Joseph’s University, Bengaluru. As a proud 1 KAR ARMD SQN NCC TP-3 cadet, I’ve become disciplined, fit, and a proud Indian.
Representing my NCC squadron, I won first place in the Throwball and Tug-Of-War competitions at the CATC Camp by 39 KAR BN NCC Bengaluru. I’ve also discovered a passion for photography, capturing everything from plants and landscapes to my pets and vehicles. Learning about light and shadows and playing with different settings excites me!
