To give the next generation of racers a chance to embark on the “The Road to MotoAmerica,” MotoAmerica announced their plans for a three-round Mini Cup series that will have young riders, ages six to fourteen competing on spec class Ohvale GP-0 mini bikes. The Mini Cup Series serves as an entry-level for riders that are too young to enter the MotoAmerica Liqui Moly Junior Cup class.
The series will run in conjunction with MotoAmerica race weekends at Road America, Th Ridge Motorsports Park, and Pittsburgh International Race Complex. The young riders will grid up on the venues’ karting circuits, racing in four classes: 110cc (four-speed); 160cc; 190cc (racers aged up to 14 years); and 190 Adult (racers over the age of 15).
To call the Ohvale GP-0 a mini bike is a disservice. It is closer to a mini road racer that is becoming known in the US after the brand was established in Europe. For more data on the Ohvale brand, please HERE.
