She would've licked most of them if she had participated. She came there as Yamaha's whatever. Just did the photoshoot, at least until I was there.

Alisha Abdullah is the daughter of a former legendary racer, Mr. R.A. Abdullah.
Similar to the Jacky Ickx-Vanina Ickx father-daughter racing heritage.

Are you sure?
I have ridden with her at the track. I was riding my RTR and Killer's R15. I'll not say who was faster for I'm on tracks only since 5 months and she since over 5 yrs. So its surprising if you say she would have licked.

Nope, will keep you posted. I'm working on the engine. Its a long way to go.

Infact the kind of polictics Mr Abdullah was trying to create during the R15 race was really absurd. I have nothing against them, but he goes to any extent of putting down other riders for his daughters sake. All the racers know how fast she is and how convenently her father does a "match fixing" of sorts during her races. There are no great credientials for such people coz ultimately on an open proving ground, they stand no chance. But her father was an excellent racer. A man with sheer talent. I know he is just trying to prove his point with his daughter, so its ok.

She DID take part in the race and did a best of 2:29+ in the long loop.

I wouldn't mind if i was on the track with Alisha & got licked!

But 2:29 is still faster than other guys at this race. Killer finished at 2:15 the others were behind him with a gap of 20secs, as per the video, so the next best rider did a time of 2:35.

I have seen her in Kari lot of times I never knew about her father but I did see her along with her mother most of the times.
Once in super bike category she did drive quiet fast but there were few of them fatser and lapped her, I remember Dilip Rogers was pretty fast !!

I don't know much about her but i see a lot of hurt egos at the mention of her name. Why would you guys want to compare her with dilip rogers or any other male racer ? she is good & she is Indian & I am proud of that, so should any Indian. Instead we say that her father fixes races & what not.

Agreed. Lets encourage and see her in more racing. This should help other unknown lady bikers to get encouragement and we could see more of them on tracks. Hopefully.
