2013 Wiesner Insurance Ontario Mini Enduro Championship

With the ever expanding Veteran classes in off-road racing in Ontario, many people are wondering where the future of our sport is going. Where are the new riders and how do we bring young people into organized competition? To anyone who has been to a World Enduro Canada Mini Enduro, the answer is obvious. The kids that participate in these events are definitely the future stars of off-road racing.

These events are designed specifically for young riders and race day is structured solely for them. This is not an adult race where young competitors make up a part of the program. All aspects of the event cater to riders under the age of 16. Everyone from the newest rider on a 50cc automatic to a seasoned 85cc MX racer can be challenged and entertained at these events. Competition is a closed course, special test format. Racers are outfitted with a transponder and are electronically timed in various special tests. By eliminating the anxiety often associated with “bar to bar” racing, these events offer a more relaxed environment for young, developing riders.

Entry fee for each rider is $30 which includes the use of a transponder for the day as well as lunch for all attendees. There is an awards ceremony after lunch and trophies in all four classes are presented with racer acceptance speeches on the podium. Detailed results are posted immediately after the event and later in the day uploaded to the WEC website.

Due to the continued success, the Championship for the 2013 season has expanded to four rounds. Venues will include two favourite locations from last year; Shelburne and Guelph along with two new locations; Meaford and Wingham.

New this year, resulting from increasing entries and input from parents and riders, is a “Pee Wee” class. This new class is designed for the youngest riders, with no competition experience, on 50cc bikes. The next step up from Pee Wee is C class for slightly more experienced riders or new riders that are on slightly larger bikes. B is for more established riders and racers who may have been competing in this series in the past. Lastly, the A class is for the most experienced riders. Bikes like 85cc MX bikes and 125cc and 150cc four strokes are most common in this class.

A press release is distributed before each race to brief riders on what to expect at the upcoming event including directions to the start location. We ask for an RSVP email when possible to allow the organizer to prepare a sufficient lunch for all attendees. Directions and start times will be on our site – www.worldendurocanada.com

June 22 - Wingham

August 11 - Guelph

Sept 29 – Shelburne
