Getting started

How to start?  You would love to have a go, but how?  If you are a Minimoto rider there are currently 2 “Academies” that can advise and train beginners, and even more advanced riders of all ages.  The contact details for these are at the bottom of the page.     Machines and protective clothing will be available to hire at the venues.

The Academies are close to each other but usually run on different weekends.      

To be able to race with FAB-Racing you will need a race Minimoto, Metrakit MiniGP50 or 70, or one of the adult class bikes to be able to practice or compete at any of the open circuit race events.   There are practice sessions for all classes run on the Friday before the weekend race days and these can be an ideal opportunity to see that you are happy to compete on the Saturday and Sunday. FAB will also assess that they are happy with your ability to be safe to compete, both for yourself and other competitors.     With Friday practice paid separately to the main weekend races you can decide to race or not after that if you are new to it all.   You don’t need a race licence to get started.
