What's New

The Cameron Park Mini Moto Championship 2016 has been run and won last ANZAC Day long weekend. Chris Lawler (GRC RR, BZM, #83) claimed the Senior GP50 trophy with Corey Stevens (BMS P3, IAME, #64) and Daniel Porteous (GRC RR, BZM, #69) claiming the third place trophy.
Friday's practice & qualifying saw great weather greet the day and lasted well into the afternoon until a cool change brought temps down.
Tony Vella (DM, IAME, #34) led Chris Lawler in Q1 early then Chris hit back to take the top time until Tony came back and claimed pole by 1/10th second. The lap record remains 1:01.167.
Track temps went down significantly by the time Q2 came around and caught out Christopher Law (GRC RRz3, CS Factory, #70) at Turn 1 when he missed the brake marker and touched the rear wheel of the rider in front sending him down the road at high speed. Fortunately Chris recovered but medical assistance is mandatory and the session was red flagged until Chris could be checked over. Time ticked away meaning Q2 was not restarted and Q1 times remained for grid positions for Saturday's Race 1.
Saturday morning was wet, wet wet. This meant that the wet race policy was now required. The rider briefing saw many perplexed riders trying to decide what to do. As of 9:00 it was wet. Wet tyres were made available for those who wanted them, however the wet policy states that 30min before the scheduled race the Competition Director will declare wet or dry and competitors will be given 1.5hrs to change to wet settings and an extra 30 min practice.The track managed to dry out except for two corners with some standing water which was swept and at 10:30 Race 1 was declared dry much to everyone's relief.
Four solid races then took place with some fallers and many improved performances. By Race 2 Chris Lawler & Corey Stevens were even with a win each. Chris Lawler then took out Race 3 & Race 4 to claim top honours. Corey was being challenged by Sean Ambrosius in Race 4 who got pastDaniel Porteous for third place but Corey held on to 2nd place. Local ridersTodd Amos and Aidan Baker were having a nice battle throughout the meeting.
Overall the atmosphere was great with a few interested spectators coming down for a look and everyone had an enjoyable meeting despite some bumps & bruises suffered by falls but no one was seriously injured. This is a great aspect of minimoto for those concerned about safety.
Mini Moto Racing extend many thanks to those who travelled from Victoria, Queensland and Sydney to support this meeting and look forward to Xtreme Karting hosting the Qld Mini Moto Championship 2016 on 1st July on the Gold Coast. Members, book your entry here.
Thanks also to Peter Hird for some fantastic photographic work and NKRC for keeping the facilities available in good order.

About Mini Moto

Mini moto is about junior and senior enthusiasts having fun. It has a few distinct advantages over any other machine for your young riders and in particular novice riders.

Machine weight - < 20kg

Junior Power plant – 2-stroke air-cooled governed engine which can be de-restricted and easily upgraded as skill and confidence grows (4.2hp to 10hp). Pro-level machines are around 16hp suitable for expert level riders.

Simplicity – centrifugal clutch, front and rear brakes are operated on the handlebars.

Price & quality – new European made machines are available ready to ride or race from $2399 from our sponsors

A 12 month license is $165. 6 month and 3 month are also available here.

Spare parts and maintenance – our sponsors fully support all makes and models which they supply.

Fun – Watch the complete novice start from a wobbly first lap and increasingly grow their confidence lap by lap.

Safety – Being very low to the ground reduces the impact of the unavoidable ‘get-off’

Controlled environment – Go kart circuits are ideal tracks for the scale and power of mini-moto

Skills development – the basic skills of riding a motorcycle are easily learnt and mastered without the complications of foot operated brakes, gears and clutches. These higher level skills are built upon the foundations learnt from mini moto. A proven philosophy as most current MotoGP racers had their start with a mini-moto.

Storage & Transportation – No large garage or trailer is necessary. A mini-moto and all tools can simply fit into the boot of even a small-medium sized SUV/hatchback or wagon greatly reducing the need for peripheral equipment. Live in a flat? Well your mini-moto wont take up much space and can also be a great talking point!

Where to ride & race – Mini Moto racing is expanding its list of mini moto friendly go-kart circuits Australia wide. Some are even book and ride. See the calendar for events in your area or interstate. One license for everyone everywhere.

Administration – all administration tasks are handled online from one website. All license holders can access their accounts at any time, book for any event and be kept up to date with a regular newsletter and also with a Facebook page.
