Minikhana is an exciting event for junior riders and we now have the opportunity to hold a Minikhana at a venue in Coolup.
Race experience isn't necessary as it is an exciting carnival style event. Riders put themselves against each other to be the most skilled in gymkhana style games which include start and park, ring return, clover, bending, mini cross, looping and slow races.
This year’s Minikhana will be run as a Championship with the hopes of building it from a once off event for kids, to be something they become involved with throughout the year.
Along with the competition there will be 2 Yamaha bikes and a quad for those who are keen to try but have not yet committed to buying a motorcycle.
Every event will have accredited Coaches to help those who are not yet confident in competing and will help develop their riding skills.
In short MiniKhana will suit riders from 4 to under 14 years riding a maximum sized 85 cc 2 stroke or 150 cc 4 stroke. More information about Minikhana is under the "For Kids tab on our Website. http://www.motorcyclingwa.org.au/kids
This event will be open to all licence holders including Mini, Recreation, Junior Club and Junior National and costs $15 to enter. In addition, for newcomers to the sport a free "Come and Try" licence will be available. For those riders who have previously held a licence, one event recreation licences will be available for $20. The classes for the event will be finalised once entries are received.
Online entries are now open and can be found at https://www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=20843
. Entries will be taken on the day with a small extra cost of $5. We would encourage online entries, not just to save some money, but to allow us to best cater for the event in advance.
Full information is on the Motorcycling Western Australia website, along with action packed videos showing the games of Minikhana.
