no body cares about mini racing...what people care about is to waste their money on big race bike and think that they are somebody, future Valentino!!! oh yeah and it makes them more manly...
I'll never be a world champion on anything, but at the end of my life I'll sure be glad I got out and tried racing instead of wishing I had. What you call a 'waste of money' is to me the most fun I've ever had on two wheels. Maybe you should give it a go...?

TL is right, most people don't care about mini racing and think its a joke. He and I both race 85cc motards and have so much fun doing it. I dare anyone to come out, borrow a bike and actually race and tell me it sucks.

I know what you are saying about Valentino... Brett McCormick Suzuki GSX-R600 1:52.393 for the practice at Daytona (200). He is in 9th right now, awesome. He comes from mini racing around here. So the next Valentino is to be found but next one will not be a 30 years old racer right?...But most 30 year old guys from around here would much rather be at Mission than at Chilliwack (Greg Moore raceway) because it's more manly to them to be on a big bike than a mini. Same rules apply and it's way cheaper!! not as fast but as much fun. People think we are a joke. I do track days (some times) cause it's fun but there is no way that I would fork out $15000 for a budget to race at Mission (or Seattle, Portland etc...) Mini racing budget is a few hundred bucks. I don't want to offend any (big) racers but I find it weird at the attendance that we have considering the tracks and the little money that it cost to race minis. here is a video for the Quesnel track and I'm sure that you know about the Greg Moore one.
the track day picture come from WestCoast superbike, I didn't write that on my own pictures. The other one is my cr 85 (2stoke fun)
That actually looks like quite a bit of fun, is there a way to rent those bikes though? I don't tend to keep a fresh stock of miniature motorcycles on hand.
But what I find it hard to believe is how many big bike racers, or even just street riders, dont have any kids involved in the sport. There has to be kids on the mainland ages 7 and up that would want to race pocket bikes or CRF50's, Yamaha PW's, any mini bike they can get their little hands on.
My kids are why Im involved in mini racing in the first place, I dont even race!
Here is a video with full size motard and mini motard in Chilliwack. I'm sure that with jumps it would be a different results but just to go around the track...an 85cc can keep up with a 450cc. We can brake way later and catch up!
crash at 1.30 min in front of me.
Looks like a lot of fun. Anything with two-strokes is good in my books
A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
