Defining and establishing a new category within the sport in India, the Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup gives young motorsport athletes a chance to represent the country in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Qualifiers in Spain.

India, June 1, 2017 (GPN) : Young biking enthusiasts, between 12 and 16 years of age, will have a chance to showcase their prowess on an international stage, with the 2nd edition of Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup. It not only defines a new category in the sport in India but also gives the best motorcycle racer in the country a chance to be a part of the internationally acclaimed Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup 2017!

The programme made its debut in last year’s Suzuki Gixxer Cup where the MMRT racetrack in Chennai witnessed an exciting finish to the first edition of the Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup in the country. Seven talented, young Indian riders went head to head in the final round in a bid to win the first ever-Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup held in India. After six races spread across two rounds, Sachin Chaudhary from Ahmedabad was crowned the winner, in a true test of talent. He went on to represent India in Spain at the qualifiers of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Spain. Though the Ahmedabad-based rider could not make it to the finals of the selection event held in Spain – the Indian came back with a valuable experience.


In the words of Mr. Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director, Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited, “We are extremely pleased to announce our tie up with JK Tyre to conduct the Suzuki Gixxer Cup 2017. This partnership between two pioneers can only lead to great things for Indian Motorsport. We are also equally happy to announce our continued partnership with Red Bull for the Road to Rookies Cup for a 2nd year running. We look forward to another exciting year of racing and are confident that we will raise the bar even higher this time!”


Running together with JK Tyre Motorsport this year, a Rider Selection Programme for enthusiasts aged between 12-16 years will be held at four cities, starting first week of June in order to scout for young riding talent across the country.


The first round (June 4) will be held at Meco Kartopia in Bangalore, before moving on to Aizawl, Mizoram at the Airstrip (June 10), followed by Pune at Rayo Racing’s track (June 18) and finally Greater Noida at World of Wonders (June 25). The selected riders will then compete against each other in the three rounds for Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup, held alongside the Suzuki Gixxer Cup to be held at Kari Motor Speedway (Coimbatore), during the JK Tyre National Racing Championship.


Both the Suzuki Gixxer Cup and the Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup will be run as a part of the prestigious 20th JK Tyre FMSCI National Racing Championship 2017. While the Road to Rookies Cup will cater to riders between the ages of 12 and 16 years, the Suzuki Gixxer Cup will be for riders of 17 years and older.


The schedule for the three rounds for Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup is below:







7th – 9thJuly

Kari Motor Speedway



4th – 6thAugust

Kari Motor Speedway



1st – 3rdSeptember

Kari Motor Speedway



The second edition of Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup would culminate in the 3rdround at Kari, as the most talented rider will head to Spain and get a chance to represent India in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Qualifiers in September.


Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, since its inception in 2007 has grown into one of the most thrilling 2 wheel spectacles in the world. The Rookies Cup has released new stars into the world of Grand Prix racing; both Moto2 and Moto3 World Champions in 2015 were ex Rookies. Every year the level of competition has climbed and this year’s intake are set to raise the bar yet again for the 11th running of the Cup.
