The Return of Royal Enfield’s BTR Program for 2024

Royal Enfield has announced the return of its popular Build. Train. Race (BTR) program for the fifth time for 2024 road racing series of the Progressive American Flat Track National Championships and MotoAmerica. In the new chapter of the BTR program, Royal Enfield continues to invite female racers with diverse and varying degrees of racing skills into the North American racing circuit. In addition, female racers will also avail the happening chance to tour the United States and ride exciting custom Royal Enfield bikes in races that they will make race-ready themselves over the course of this program.

In the BTR program, race aspirants will be mentored through the entire process of transforming a production Royal Enfield motorcycle into a custom, fast, track-ready two-wheeler. Racers will race the following 650 cc Royal Enfield motorcycles:

  • Royal Enfield Interceptor
  • Royal Enfield Continental GT

Moreover, female track aspirants will get an opportunity to learn racecraft and related techniques that will prove to be extremely useful throughout their professional careers. Participating in a national racing championship is just an added bonus of this auspicious occasion.

Here’s what Adrian Sellers, the head of Royal Enfield’s Custom and Motorsport Industrial Design Department had to say about the RE BTR 2024 program:

“As the Build. Train. Race (BTR) program enters its fifth year, we are proud to continue to partner with MotoAmerica and American Flat Track to grow this inspiring community of female racers. Every year, we see more and more love and support from the racing community, and we are proud to continue developing racers on the track and creating role models in the sport for young motorcyclists.”
