Royal Enfield’s Build. Train. Race. Program to Return for the 2024 Season

Royal Enfield continues to inspire a new generation of women riders

MILWAUKEE (February 12, 2024) — Royal Enfield is proud to announce the return of its signature Build. Train. Race. (BTR) program to both MotoAmerica and Progressive American Flat Track national championships for the 2024 season. Now in its fifth season, this first of its kind program continues to welcome women from all backgrounds and experience levels into the racing community for the opportunity to travel the United States and race motorcycles.

Royal Enfield’s BTR program guides aspiring racers through the process of building a race bike from a stock Royal Enfield motorcycle (INT650 in BTR Flat Track and Continental GT 650 in BTR Road Racing), learning technique and race craft on the track, and finally racing within a national championship. Both the road racing series within MotoAmerica and the flat track series within Progressive American Flat Track will return for 2024.

“As the Build. Train. Race. program enters its fifth year, we’re proud to continue to partner with MotoAmerica and American Flat Track to grow this inspiring community of female racers,” said Adrian Sellers, Royal Enfield Head – Custom & Motorsport. “Every year we see more and more love and support from the racing community, and we’re proud to continue developing racers on the track and creating role models in the sport for young motorcyclists.”
