MotoGP Coming To India, It’s Time For Indian Bike-Riding Talents
MotoGP is coming to India in 2023. There will be an official announcement for it soon. There are also chances for Moto2, Moto3 & other MotoGP premier racings.
A MotoGP World Championship round will be held in India. This is the most well-known racing series to visit the nation recently, following the announcement of the Hyderabad Formula E event for February 2023.
The Noida-based Fairsteet Sports is organizing the so-called “Grand Prix of Bharat,” and an official announcement is anticipated sometime next week at a meeting with top Dorna (the MotoGP promoter) officials.
Largest Bike-Riding Population
India does possess the greatest bike-riding population in the world, despite the fact that any claim at this stage is completely speculative. The moment is right for the premier two-wheel motor racing championship to include India—the country with the largest two-wheeler market, with more than 37 million motorcycles on the road—to its annual schedule as the country’s motorcycle market opens up to performance bikes.
Indian Bike Riding Talents
India’s motorcycle riders talent has undoubtedly been noticeable on the international stage thanks to competitors like CS Santosh, KP Aravind, and Ashish Roarane who made a name for themselves at the Dakar rally, but little has occurred on the grand prix front, in part because of the absence of adequate racing infrastructure.
While prominent riders from India, including K Rajini and Sarath Kumar, have represented their country abroad—the latter having advanced all the way to the Moto3 class with Mahindra Racing in 2011—the country has yet to produce a single GP racer.
The world’s oldest motorcycle Grand Prix, the Isle of Man TT, has occasionally featured Indian motorcycle riders, although the country’s own professional motorcycle racing sector is best described as patchwork.
There are numerous racing schools in the country, and several manufacturers, including TVS and Honda, provide their own one-make championships, but none of them, not even the Indian National Motorcycling Championship, yet opened the road for GP racing.
Asia Road Racing Championship
India joined the FIM’s Road to MotoGP programme, which develops motorcycle talent between the ages of 10 and 14, according to a separate announcement from the FMSCI.
The Asia Road Racing Championship was introduced in 2019 by Honda Racing India with the goal of fostering Indian riding talent’s rise to the Moto3 class.
