Indian Supercross Racing League Bengaluru dates, Delhi round cancelled due to farmers’ protest

Delhi was originally scheduled to host the finale on February 25, but the venue has been changed due to the ongoing farmers’ protest.

Bengaluru will host the Season One finale of the Ceat Indian Supercross Racing League (ISRL) later this month following a change in the calendar. Delhi was originally scheduled to host the finale, however, some stringent curbs have been enforced in the national capital due to the ongoing farmers’ protest.

Organisers have issued a statement saying the event had to be relocated “due to unforeseen circumstances necessitating the implementation of some stringent resolutions by authorities, which could potentially create logistical challenges”.

Indian Supercross Racing League Bengaluru dates

The first two rounds of the Indian Supercross Racing League were held in Pune and Ahmedabad. Bengaluru will take over hosting duties on February 25, with the finale set to be held at the APMC ground located opposite the Phoenix Mall of Asia, Byatarayanapura.

“We acknowledge the anticipation surrounding the Season One finale, and we extend our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this adjustment. However, after careful consideration of various factors, including the prevailing circumstances, we believe that relocating the event to Bengaluru, which is considered the epitome of motorcycle events, will bolster the confidence of our partners and draw exceptional crowds. We are confident that the culminating event will offer an exhilarating Supercross racing experience to its fans,” said Veer Patel, director and co-founder of Supercross India Pvt. Ltd.
