MRRDA Junior Road Racing set for five rounds
The MRRDA is back on full song in 2011 with a 5 round National series that takes in 4 states and covers classes aimed at helping young riders develop their skills.
Since 2007 the MRRDA has been running a national road race series with Juniors the core of everything. But not just a series where riders turn up race and go home. Throughout the weekend, thanks to the California Superbike School, the riders are given coaching during the weekend to help their skills develop,
In 2011 the series is back with the following race schedule;
Round 1 March 26/27, Wakefield Park, NSW
Round 2 April 23/24, Mac Park, SA
Round 3 May 14/15, Phillip Island, VIC
Round 4 July 9/10, Morgan Park, QLD
Round 5 August 27/28, Broadford VIC
The series will cover the following classes
Nippers 70cc 2 strokes for 9 to 13 year olds

Thanks to continued support from Red Bull, not only will each round feature the Red Bull Arch, but at the end of the year one lucky Junior will be sent to compete in a selection round of the Red Bull Rookies cup. We also hope to announce more exciting prizes shortly.
We’d like to thank St George MCC, Preston MCC, Mac Park and Motorcycle Sportsmen MCC for their assistance in putting this series together and allowing the MRRDA to be included in their program.
To help those who are thinking of competing in the series The MRRDA will be supporting the Preston MCC Junior development day at Broadford on February 13th. Thanks to Honda there will be 4 CBR150’s available for kids to come and try, so it’s a great opportunity to try before you buy and get your time on the bike to obtain a race license. We hope to announce a similar event in NSW shortly. We highly recommend that Juniors competing in 2011 attend one of these events.
Anyone looking to participate in the series should keep an eye on the MRRDA website for further information.
