There will be four rounds held from June 4-25

JK Tyre opted out of the Rotax National Karting Championship earlier this year, and is now the title sponsor for the 2017 Suzuki Gixxer Cup, which was held under MRF’s National Racing Championship (NRC) until 2016. Four rounds were held this year at Bengaluru (4th June), Aizwal (10th June), Pune (18th June) and Delhi NCR (25th June).

Apart from the Gixxer cup being part of the JK Tyre NRC, 2017 (which also runs the LGB Formula 4, the Indian Touring Car and the Euro 16 series) this will be the second year of the Road to Rookies Cup (RTRC) in India. RTRC runs as a support race to the Gixxer Cup novice category and participants are between the ages of 13 and 17, in a bid to foster and train young racing talent. The winner of Road to Rookies gets a wild-card entry into the Redbull MotoGP Rookies Cup.

Sachin Chaudhari, from Ahmedabad, was last year’s entrant into the Redbull Rookies Cup qualifiers held in Spain. This will encourage a lot of youngster to enter motorsport in the future.
