Pakistan-based Tushna Patel, Pakistan’s very first Woman Rally Driver, won first place in the 7th Hub Car Rally by Toyota High way Motors, held at Max Dirt Arena in Hub (an hour’s drive from Karachi), on the 18th and 19th of January, 2020. Veteran racers from across the country participate in the Rally comprising a 20 km long track, surrounded by the beautiful scenery of Hub Mountain Range, across 8 categories – including 4 for Prepared; 3 for Stock; and 1 for Women.
Reigning champion in the Women’s category, Tushna Patel, was the favourite in her 3,000cc Vigo. Her husband and defending champion – Ronnie Patel – also participated and won second position in the ‘Prepared A’ Category.
Tushna has proven inspirational to a number of women who now follow in her footsteps. Husband, Ronnie Patel, has also won several rallies.
Kudos to the husband-wife duo for keeping up the pride of our minuscule Parsi Community in Pakistan!
