Default Why are supermodels in Bangalore...

.....rally drivers

I read in the rag about some girl called Anita Kholay and some girl called Rayne. Have never seen them win or talk about cars at length


Are they genuine drivers or is it media hype?

Anita Kholay got into it as her boyfirend (now husband i guess) was into it. She started of with bikes and is now moved to cars. I remember reading an interview with her sometime back.... she is more show than go. The second one is Rayna. She is more serious and a lot better than the former i guess. She is into 2 wheelers (RX135) so not seen around a lot. But i hear she can teach the boys a thing or two.

All of this is based on hear say. So i could well be wrong.

To call Anitha Kholay a rally driver or racer of any sort is really an insult to the sport. The only reason she gets any media attention at all is only because she is a SHE! Also an ex-Ms. Bangalore I was told (don't know if its true or not).

She is so slow, even the sweeper car has at times had to slow down in order not to overtake her!

Hey, There are only 3 women rally drivers that can be classified as Rally Drivers ...

1. Navaz Bathena ... Team MRF , used to give the guys a run for their money !!
2. Anita Nanjappa ... Not exactly a Rally driver but she did navigate for her husband on the bike and they won plenty of Rallies and Championships together ....
3. Sarika .. Present driver from Delhi but she aintin the Navaz category yet nor do I think she will get to that level but never the less she is in there and does leave a few guys behind thus in the list ...

Anybody else wanna add to this list ..Pls feel free to !!!

Cheers

Think its just the media hype. TOI in b'lore comes up with articles on cars, at times and often take interviews with the filmstarts and u can guess the rest..they talk all crap and then don't even know a **** abt what they r talking !! funny tho.

There was a recent report in TOI's auto times about some 20 yr old girl called Kadur, IIRC, who is supposed to be into racing/rallying. Let me see if I can find that supplement. I dont seem to find it online on TOI's web-site.

IMO, Navaz and Anita were one of a kind. It's going to be quite some time before we see anyone even come close to these two ladies.

Hey condor, if you are talking about the Anita of the Sholavaram fame then you be glad to know that she is married to a very good friend of mine. She is now Mrs Chitnis, working for the Harvard University and is living in Boston, USA. Was here last week for a short trip to Turkey and India. She sent me this link from Istanbul,which should be of interest to many of us.

So long....

anitha - no comments

rayna and vydehi kadur are the girls who took part in the INRC in chickmagalur and both entries are there for the bangalore rally as well, looks like these girls are a little more serious than anitha, lets see, not sure.

no one near navaz as yet and dont think will come in the near future.

Vydehi's brother, Karna drives in the FISSME championship. Atleast he used to. Used to go to school with her, a long time ago.
