On Sunday 21st July Junior Trials club held the 4th rnd of the Minikana Interclub series. This was a slightly unique event compared with other interclubs in that it was to be a timed enduro event. Riders from all the clubs around Sydney gathered at the Gwandalan track which is known for rain only to find...a dry track!
The car park was full and excitement was in the air as riders signed on for the day and transponders were fitted to bikes before they were scrutineered into the pits. Riders were split into three groups, nippers, 50cc & Miniwheels and then 65 and 85cc riders, each with their own Enduro loop.
After completing the siting lap all riders had the opportunity for a prologue lap which recorded their times and determined the placing for the next race. There appeared to be some challenging corners with a few riders missing some corners altogether! After each lap the previous time then determined the new placement. In total the riders completed approx 7 laps for the day which isn’t too bad considering lap times averaged from approx 2.30 - 6.30.
Transponder times were taken for each lap and this was used to find the fastest riders for the day. The top 5 riders in each class received a trophy and Hornsby were very well represented on the podium with the following results..
50cc C Grade - 2nd #25
50cc B Grade - 2nd #32
50cc A Grade - 1st #5

All this riding would not be possible without our parent volunteers, marshals, sweep riders and our trusty pit crew who all kept the kids safe, fed, hydrated and happy for the day. As much as they enjoyed being on the track, between each lap was a sea of yellow and black all encouraging each other and having fun.
A big Thankyou to the JT club for putting together such a fantastic event. I’m sure there will be plenty of Hornsby riders lining up to do this again next year!
