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?
The Moto Kids programme is strictly for novices and newcomers to the sport and does not cater for experienced riders, therefore riders who have competed at any competitive organised events can only enter Moto Kids if they finished in the bottom 20% of the field . Moto Kids organisers reserve the right to refuse an entry – see GCR 100 – by a rider who they consider to no longer be a newcomer or novice as a result of his/her participation in other motorsport events
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 focus of Moto Kids in 2021 will be on training, fun activities and fun races. We want to show kids and parents the love and joy of riding 2 wheels while learning about motocross and off road racing as well as all the rules and lessons that goes with proper racing.
