Pune: As the countdown clock to racing season began ticking, TVS Racing on Monday announced 17-member factory team for TVS Ladies One-Make Series 2018.
The women racers from across India were chosen after undergoing two-legged rigorous selection rounds. The selection was based on their best lap timings, physical fitness and racing abilities.
