"Building upon the success of the initial BUILD TRAIN RACE program, we decided to carry the momentum into the road racing segment, " said Royal Enfield Americas Head of Marketing Breeann Poland. "This is a unique opportunity for women interested in getting into road racing and to make a name for themselves in a national racing program. Working with a world class racer like Melissa Paris is not an opportunity that comes along often. The ladies will also be some of the first people to road race the Continental GT 650 platform, so the motorcycling world will be watching."

The participants will be chosen by a panel of judges which includes Breeann Poland, Head of Marketing - Americas, veteran road racer and flat track BTR participant Melissa Paris and accomplished racer and journalist Anne Roberts. The selected participants will then have several months and a small budget to convert a Continental GT 650 Twin into road racing trim. Paris will provide valuable insights during the build process. Entries for participants have already opened on October 14, 2020 and the last date for entries is December 1, 2020.
