    Around 800 passionate female racers from around the world applied for this year’s Formula Woman competition. Gulati, along with Deepa John and Pragathi Gowda, won the Formula Woman India assessment and progressed to the global finals in the UK.

    The 75 finalists battled it out through three days of eliminations at the PF International and Croft Circuit. Gulati emerged as one of the top 11 drivers and moved on to the final shootout in Sweden. Here, the finalists were judged based on their performance, control, attitude and awareness. The panel was led by British GT racer Mia Flewitt and also included ice driving experts and rally coaches.

    Gulati aced this final shootout as well, and has been selected as one of the four drivers of the Formula Woman GT Cup Team. The other winners are Erika Hoffman (Canada), Jodi Sloss (Scotland) and Sara Misir (Jamaica). They’ll be split into two pairs, while Steph Sore (England) and Amy Riley (England) will serve as reserve drivers.
