The racing spectacle will kick off in August 2023 and will conclude in November 2023 with three rounds of eight races. This season, Royal Enfield will be continuing with the Pro-Am series format, which allows amateur and professional racers to compete on the same grid together. This guarantees a thrilling experience for spectators and racers alike.
The Continental GT Cup brings in racers from all over the country, providing them with the opportunity to fully engage in the sport of track racing. All riders are armed with identical, specially race-prepared Continental GT-R650s, all powered by the internationally acclaimed and awarded 648cc parallel-twin engine from Royal Enfield.
