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 4 – 12. We do not cater for quad bikes. We have clearly defined Development Classes that the kids can compete in listed below. Youngsters that have scored points in Regional and / or National racing are not eligible to participate at Moto Kids.

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 flat tracks and where possible some flat off road loops with some basic obstacles

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.

Classes:

The development classes list is a guideline. In the case of a rider showing good ability or riding skill they will be moved around to ride amongst a group more suited to their skill level.

What you can expect on the day:

The kids all score in their respective class but they are grouped into a few racing groups.
For the off-road they do a short visible off-road 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 off-road 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.
