2017 saw the introduction of the new Suzuki GIXXER Cup class to New Zealand road racing. 

The first demonstration race for the class was at Manfeild Chris Amon Circuit during the Mini Moto GP race October 16-18 October. This class is a stepping stone for riders to move into full road racing. Go to "Stop Press" >> "Mini Moto Technical Project" for more information from India where the class is germinating into full bloom.

The main theme of the Mini Moto GP however is  for secondary schools students, male & female, years 11, 12, 13 to engineer, construct and fabricate using their skills that have been taught at their secondary schools to apply using kits of engines, wheels, & body work to design and build their own frame, forks, suspension for the power source chosen from 50cc aircooled 2 stroke, 38cc watercooled 2 stroke, Minibikes and 70cc 4 stroke Motard style Mini bikes, along with 110cc Sidecars.

Then the fruition of their labours is tested at the Mini Moto GP at Manfeild Chris Amon Circuit alongside some 200 plus competitors from secondary schools all over New Zealand. It's a team effort by outstanding individuals.
