BMW Motorrad India has announced the second edition of Indian National Qualifier round for the 2020 International GS Trophy. The registrations for the event are now open on the official BMW Motorrad website. The event will be organized in Goa from 27th to 29th September 2019. Only owners of BMW GS motorcycles with 650cc and above engine capacity can register for the Qualifier round.
That said, the International GS Trophy is going to be held in New Zealand in 2020. And the winners of Indian national Qualifier rounds will represent India in the international off-road event. Each of the three participants will be provided essentials to fly to New Zealand and prepare for the Trophy. Also, a personalized F 850 GS motorcycle will be given to each team member for the duration of the event.
Rudratej Singh, President, and CEO, BMW Group India said. “The GS Trophy is not a rally or a race; it focuses mainly on team spirit as well as skills that are tested in various ways. It unites the world of motorcycling with the essence of friendly competition. We are delighted to introduce the second edition of GS Trophy qualifiers for our GS customers in India. All the roads are leading to Goa and every meter will be packed with pure enduro fun. GS riders are invited to battle out the intensive stages and numerous challenges. The participants will have an opportunity to experience a unique and once-in-a-lifetime event.”
Speaking about the event, it is the seventh edition of the International GS trophy which will be held from 9th to 16th February 2020. New Zealand is the chosen place for this event because the island offers an ideal terrain where the rainforest meets glaciers, steppe-like flora meets subtropical flora. There are high plateaus and mountain peaks with heights of over 3000 meters. Not to forget those fjord landscapes and countless uplands and woodlands. These conditions make for the exciting trails and grueling challenges.
Teams from other countries include – Australia, Japan, Latin America, Malaysia, Mexico, Middle East, China, France, Italy Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, UK, and the USA. Nordic countries like Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland will also take part.
