Motorcycle Racing Academies in India

It is not an unknown fact that the motorsports in India are not as popular as compared to other sports. In recent years the motorsport scenario has started to change in India as manufacturers and organizations like Suzuki, TVS, Maruti-Suzuki, JK Tyres, Red Bull, etc have started organizing various four-wheel and two-wheel motorsports in India to encourage talented motorsport athletes. Among various motorsports, motorcycle racing is one of the most popular motorsports, especially among the youth. Involving oneself in racing on public roads is dangerous and is illegal too. Racing must be practiced only in safe confinements of a race track under the guidance of experts. So for those who seek to build a career in motorcycle motorsports or want to improve their riding skills, here are three racing academies which specialize in providing training on motorcycle racing:

The curriculum consists of three levels, 1,2, and 3. The 'Race Kraft' level is exclusively dedicated to teaching the art of racing. It is the only racing academy in India which provides training around the year. It covers all the aspects of riding and racing including rules and regulations framed by the Federation of Motorsport Clubs of India (FMSCI) in a safe and professional racing environment.

The school, CSS India first set its camp in India in 2010 at the MMSC Track in Chennai. The two major goals of the school are:

  • To provide world class training to talented youngsters.
  • To improve skills of every motorcycle rider.

The CSS India does not provide training to first-time riders therefore, some experience in motorcycle riding is at least required. Also, riders must carry their armoured leather riding gears as the school does not provide any riding gears.
