Recommended Race Tracks to do training and practise

Race tracks have to be of certain minimum standards to make it worthwhile for you to do your training and practise , to sharpen your skills and to make you competitive in track racing . 

There are only 3 recognised  race tracks in India . They  are :

  1.  Buddh International Circuit (BIC) , Greater Noida, near Delhi  http://buddhinternationalcircuit.in/
  2. Madras Motor Race Track   ,   (MMRT) near Chennai http://www.madrasmotorsports.in/racetrack.php
  3. Kari Motor Speedway , near Coimbatore      http://www.lgsports.co.in/

More race tracks are in the process of being constructed , so we may have a few more in the years to come 


There are other tracks which are smaller, about 1.2 Km long, which could also be used for training and practise . These are  tracks which are used for National Go kart  Racing Championships 

They are :

  • Meco Kartopia , Bangalore     http://mecokartopia.com
  • Mohite Racing Academy ,  Kolhapur.       https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mohite-Racing-Academy/172906786150584?nr
  • Circuit Chicane , Hyderabad  .https://www.mecomotorsports.co.in/circuit-chicane/
  • RPM Go karting , Bhopal  https://www.rpmgokarting.com/pages/go-kart 

Insight : Getting certified on  smaller tracks other than those mentioned above may be a waste of  resources . Mini tracks of 400 to 500 meters may serve no purpose other than having some fun . I doubt if you can learn any real riding skills on such tracks as the speeds are much lower and corners are tight . Even bikes over 150cc could be a overkill on such tracks .

But till such time, more race  tracks are built in India , these mini tracks will atleast keep the riding skills polished for riders who stay far away from the recognised race or Go kart tracks .
