Moto Kids.

 

What is Moto Kids?
Moto Kids was launched in 2015 and is a Fun Race Series that exists for novice and amateur kids as a stepping stone before Club and Regional Racing. It is for developing junior motorcycle riders and is the breeding ground for the future generation of two wheeled enthusiasts. We provide a platform that makes motorcycle riding fun and gives youngsters a way to socially enjoy themselves before deciding on the next step of riding or racing.

Who is Eligible?
Moto Kids is very specifically for Novice and Amateur kids who ride motorcycle between the ages of 5 - 10. We do not cater for quad bikes. We have clearly defined Development Classes that the kids can compete in listed below.
Youngsters that participate in Regional and National racing are not eligible to compete in any of our Development Classes but there are Exhibition Classes for them to have fun in and showcase their abilities at the events.

Who should come to Moto Kids?
Kids that are learning to ride. Kids that want to get used to riding with other kids. Kids that want to get their first race experience. Kids that want to have fun but don't want to go to more serious racing.

What makes our series different?
We not only provide a fun racing day for beginner and amateur kids in both MX and off road but we prepare them for more formal racing by teaching them what they need to know. Everything from flags, to following trail markings, to how race days work is all part of our events.

Definition:
Novice: Newcomer, a person who is new to the circumstances in which he or she is placed; beginner.
Amateur: A person inexperienced or unskilled in a particular activity.

Our Events:
Working with MX clubs, we create fun days of various kinds for kids. We endeavour to offer scenarios that will develop a variety of riding skills for them.
Our events make use of junior MX tracks, flat tracks and where possible some flat off road loops. Each event offers something different depending on the facilities at the venue.

Due to the nature of this sport we will be extremely strict when it comes to rider safety and riders must wear all required protective gear while riding in order to participate.

How to get Started?
Youngsters who would like to participate on Moto Kids must have a motorcycle and must be able to ride it at a beginner level or better. Riders must have all necessary protective gear for riding safety.

What you can expect on the day:
The kids all score in their respective class but they are grouped into 2 racing groups. Group 1 with the younger riders and Group 2 with the older riders.
For the enduro they do a short visible offroad loop. We give a time limit and they must do as many laps as they can in that time limit. We traditionally start the day with the loop.
For the MX, there is a short practice followed by 2 racing heats of 8 minutes + 1 lap. There is sufficient time between each for resting. For the peewee’s the track has specifically been graded that they can easily go over all the jumps or in some cases, chicken runs are provided to go past bigger jumps.
With each Group (1 & 2) we run a staggered start. This means all bikes line up in rows based on the make and model of the bike, this will be explained in depth in riders briefing. At registration all riders are issued with a sticker telling you which group you are in (1 or 2) and which row you will start on. Please be sure to make note of it so that when you line up for the race we can do so as quick as possible to get the race underway.
