Provides entry to the sport of motorcycling riding. Its focus is on training children in the art of controlling a motorcycle, rather than speed as the determining factor, racing with a maximum of four riders on the track at any one time. Through the tightly controlled program of activities that includes Motocross and technical “witches hat” events, the children gain the skills to become safer riders in all disciplines. Minikhana is a training ground that children pass through prior to competing in open class racing. For example, in all events, children race in maximum of four riders on the track at any one time. They must learn to stay wholly within their lanes at the starts, and they must learn the meaning of the safety flags.

The Aims of Minikhana Competition are;

    • To provide an environment in which riders can learn motorcycling skills and participate in organised competition.
    • The development of riding skills and techniques is emphasised through the primary requirement of the rider to complete an event correctly before a place is awarded.
    • Skill, rather than speed, is the determining factor in many events.To provide a safe and enjoyable environment where riders with a common interest can meet and develop friendships.
    • To provide a venue where riders can legally ride under adult supervision.

The clubs Minikhana activities will be run out the Horsley Park Minikhana Complex.
