What is Indian Supercross Racing League?
Taking inspiration from the IPL, the Indian Supercross Racing League introduced a franchise-based format for supercross racing for the first time globally. Recognized by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), CEAT ISRL aims to transcend the traditional racing experience and promises to be a game-changer in the world of Supercross.
Six teams have been shortlisted for the inaugural season of the ISRL, with motorsports legends Gaurav Gill, Dhruv Mohite and CS Santosh each leading their respective teams.
Following an auction process, a total of 48 racers were selected, with the final grid including popular names such as Matt Moss, 9-time Australian MX and SX Champion; Anthony Renard, 4-time South African Supercross Champion Anthony Renard; German MXGP racer Nico Koch and others.
CEAT ISRL has four categories – 450cc International Riders, 250cc International Riders, 250cc India-Asia Mix and 85cc Junior category. By bringing together elite riders from around the world, the racing league will provide riders with a competitive platform.
Since ISRL follows a league format, the objective is for the team to accumulate maximum points collectively.
