IRVINE, Calif. — MotoAmerica will be the race portion of Royal Enfield’s Build, Train, Race program with a group of women selected by Royal Enfield to prepare and race its Continental GT 650 motorcycles in three rounds of the 10-round MotoAmerica series.

Royal Enfield’s BTR program will be racing with the MotoAmerica series at Brainerd (Minn.) Int’l Raceway July 30-Aug. 1, Pennsylvania’s Pittsburgh Int’l Race Complex Aug. 13-15 and Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama Sept. 17-19. Additionally, the BTR participants will be interacting with fans at the opening round of the MotoAmerica series at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Ga. April 30-May 2.

Professional road racer and current BTR Flat Track program participant Melissa Paris has agreed to mentor the women during every phase of the BTR Road Race program. She will work with each participant on creating a design for their builds, creating sponsorship decks, and training off and on the track.

“I think it’s great that we are working with Royal Enfield and its program to get more women involved in road racing,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “I know our fans are going to be stoked to see what these talented women racers come up with in their design and preparation of their motorcycles, and to see them battle on the racetrack will be the icing on the cake. We look forward to meeting them all at Road Atlanta and watching them race at Brainerd, Pitt Race and Barber later in the season.”
