    Default Motorcycle racing calendar of India

    In the previous article, we told you about the Getting Started part of motorcycle racing in India. While we covered quite a few points regarding the FMSCI license and how it makes one eligible for racing in India, one must know about the races that happen in India as well. So, in this article we bring to you, the racing calendar of India with the information of all the major motorcycle racing events, both on the tarmac and off it. There are a lot of motorcycle racing events that take place throughout the year. Firstly, the ones that racers like to start with are manufacturer-specific One Make Races. They are organized by TVS Racing, Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki. The details of the same can be obtained from their specific websites.

    Now, the races that every aspiring racer looks forward to, are the National Championships. In India, we have the MRF MMSC FMSCI Indian National Motor Cycle Racing Championship which is for road racing. Then we have MMSC FMSCI Indian National 2W Drag Championship for drag racing. Off the tarmac we have championships for Supercross and Dirt Track and Rallies as well namely, MRF MOGRIP FMSCI National Supercross Championship, 2w Dirt Track National Championship and MRF MOGRIP FMSCI Indian National Rally Championship respectively. In addition to that, there are a lot of manufacturer and club-specific activities that populate the motorcycle racing calendar of India. (We are going to be discussing the 2019 calendar so the details that follow are according to FMSCI).
