Close to 100 riders will congregate at the MMRT here this weekend for the second round of MMSC FMSCI Indian National Motorcycle Drag Racing Championship 2021 with some super-quick superbikes along with homegrown machines in action.

The Super Sport 851-1050cc and Above 1051cc categories will headline the races. Bengaluru’s reigning National champion Hemant Muddappa, astride BMW S1000 RR has been dominating the Above 1051cc category, but suffered a defeat to Hyderabad’s Md Riyaz (Yamaha R1) in the 851-1050cc class in the first round in August.

Besides the above two premier categories, the card also contains races in six other classes: 2-stroke (Super Sport) Up to 130cc and 131-165cc; Girls (4-Stroke) Up to 165cc; and Super Sport Indian Up to 165cc, 226-360cc and 361-550cc.
