UK Minimoto Championship–Thank You

IMG_5109Many Thanks to Alan McIntosh for bringing  Round 1 of the UK Minimoto Championship to  Teesside Karting today (Sunday 30 April)

This round was staged with support from the Durham Agency Against Crime & BikeWise and gave members of the BikeWise Mini Bike Club an opportunity to race in a major mini bike championship (which has helped to kick start a large number of local riders into competing, successfully in major adult classes of motorcycle racing throughout the country)

Many Thanks to all the families & riders who travelled south from Scotland to compete in this meeting, to all the BikeWise riders & their families for supporting the event & to Paul Franklin & staff from Teesside Autodrome for the use of the track ( and the continued availability fortnightly on a Tuesday evening) & finally to Alan McIntosh for giving riders the opportunity to compete & progress with their riding skills

The weather shone today and we had a great afternoon’s racing, plenty of photos of the day to follow..
