Minikhana is a fun, exciting and club friendly environment whereby children aged 4 to 16 (“junior class”) and riders aged 16 and over (“senior class”) can ride their dirt motorbikes legally to develop their riding skills and techniques via a variety of events.
Participating in Minikhana competition allows participants to be part of a club, make friends, travel, meet other club members and compete for points and trophies at both club and interclub level, and overall, have fun.
This is done by providing an organised competition where skills rather than speed is the determining factor.
Riders can compete throughout the year at both Club and Interclub days and are encouraged to participate in the State Cup two-day event held annually by the clubs and sports committee. Points are awarded at each event and accumulate over the year to award overall winners across the competition.
Seeing the enthusiastic grins on the winners’ faces is a joy to all family, carers and participants involved. Not everyone can be trophy winners, however, every rider is a winner just by having a go and having fun.
The events that the riders participate in, are great fun, challenging and competitive. The events can be run in hot dry dusty conditions, rain-soaked muddy grounds, and everything in between. It’s all part of the fun. It’s great to see the children shake hands or punch fists to congratulate each other after an event is held.
The 10 racing events include-
- Accelerate and Brake
- Figure 8
- Ring Return
- Clover – footing and/or non-footing
- Mini enduro
