In its first year, the Championship will see six rounds, with Chennai, Mangalore, Pune, Goa being the other venues. Bengaluru will host the opening and final rounds. A total of eight championship classes are up for grabs, including Group A up to 800cc, Group B up to 1300cc, Group B 131cc to 165cc, Group B 166cc to 260cc, Group B 261cc to 400cc, Ladies Class up to 260cc, Scooter Class and Bullet Class.

Jai Das Menon, the founder of Motorsports INC, was delighted with the response to the championship and he is confident that it will revolutionise two-wheeler racing in India. "I am really very pleased with the number of entries. This shows that if provide the right format, every youngster will step forward to compete in it," he said.

Apart from the eight main classes, the amateur riders can try their luck in the non-championship class, the Star of Karnataka (2/4 stroke up to 260cv Group B).
