In order to climb the professional ladder in the racing world, it’s no secret that you must live in Europe. No matter if the racing medium is cars or motorcycles, you must live in Europe to have the best shot at going pro. Though small series take place worldwide, they aren’t necessarily helping you get to the professional level. Those who wish to become a contestant on the world stage of racing often have to take the risk and move to Europe.
The FIM and Dorna are introducing the FIM MiniGP World Series to fill the gap of moto-racers that wish to test their skills before making a leap of faith and moving to Europe. By everyone using the same bikes and following the same rules, the FIM MiniGP will standardize the MiniCup platforms worldwide.
The official bike of the MiniGP will be the Ohvale GP-0 160 and Pirelli as the official tire for the series. These bikes will be raced by riders from ages 10 to 14. Each competition will have a minimum of 15 permanent riders racing in each event.
To qualify as MiniGP series 2021 season, the first event must be held before July 2021, and the final event being held no later than October 17, 2021. Races must take place on agreed-upon karting circuits that meet minimum lengths and standards by the FIM ahead of time. According to MotoGP.com, “At the end of the season, the top competitors will be offered some incredible opportunities.”
