With a clear but very chilly morning competitors were all geared up for round three of the 2015 Minikhana Regional Interclub series at Penrith Minibike Club last Sunday 29th May. Although it was a very cold start to the morning, by around 9 am conditions started to warm up and we were treated to near perfect riding weather for the rest of the day. The track was dry and competitors found the conditions slightly slippery however they enjoyed Penrith’s exclusive events; Acceler8 and Start and Park involving riders having to not only show their skills on the bike but having to race to the finish line on foot, not as easy as it looks in motorbike boots! The kids were also treated to some ‘half time entertainment’ watching the flat track riders whom were also hosting an event at the Nepean raceway.
Congratulations to all our riders especially the nippers that attended the day and got to experience the Penrith track for the first time.
At the end of the day, Hornsby congratulated the following riders for their podium positions:
50cc B Grade - 2nd Charlize #56
50cc A Grade - 2nd Ben #580
MW C Grade - 3rd Jack #7
65cc A Grade - 3rd Will #693
85cc SW B Grade - 3rd Will #48
JBW B Grade - 3rd Oli #628
Overall for the day Hornsby came 4th out of the seven clubs, which is a great effort with only a few riders attending the day. Hornsby would also like to thank all the members for their help in marshalling for the day and helping Penrith Club on their day which was conducted in lovely Autumn Weather.
The next Regional event is scheduled for June 19th which is the Ku-Ring-Gai Miniwheels Regional. This is a Trials event and is to be held at Junior Trials Gwandalan. Click here for more details.
