First edition of the Red Bull Ace of Dirt starts tomorrow!
The Red Bull Ace of Dirt is an elimination style dirt track / trail event which requires knowledge of various offroad riding disciplines. The last man standing after the dirt brawl at the Big Rock DirtPark gets the chance to train with Red Bull Athlete and Dakar rally pilot, CS Santosh.
An event like this has never taken place in India. 32 selected riders will battle each other on a specially laid course which consists of Motocross, Dirt track and Enduro sections all put together to offer a unique challenge to make it to the final top four to compete for the win. But they must make it through the semi-finals round that will offer a unique challenge where all will compete on identical Hero Xpulse bikes in a one-make dirt track challenge which will eliminate any advantage or disadvantage their own machines would have had.
“I am excited to have this opportunity with energy drink giant Red Bull to dream up this event with this unique concept here in India on a new format of racing that we have not previously had. We are also delighted to have Hero MotoSports join hands for this event as part of their vision to promote Motor Sports and Off-Road biking culture in India. All these major partners coming together to offer a complete ecosystem for the event, is a great support to the event and motor sports in the country. Ultimately, this format will allow all different types of riders to compete together and develop good overall skills that will one day be a platform to transition into cross country rally racing and on day to the Dakar!” said Red Bull athlete CS Santosh.
