Cash prize boost for Irish Minibike racers

In Minibikes, News

RIDERS of the Irish Minibike Championship have yet another big prize to look forward to this season as a new cash purse is launched.

IMC chiefs today announced the brand new Denise Harris Award with a total of more than £1000 on offer.

Courtesy of The Harris Group, one of Ireland’s leading importers and distributors and distributors of commercial vehicles for the construction and mass transport industries, the prize fund will be allocated to the top three overall competitors across all Senior classes at the end of the 2021 championship.

In another leg up for the IMC, the news comes on the back of a number of programme launches within the club, including the offer to ride a Kayo MiniGP machine as part of the CoreCut scholarship and use of a 10TEN 140R in the Dualways scholarship scheme.

And in uncertain times, IMC Vice Chairman Baylon McCaughey says the vote of confidence couldn’t come at a better stage.

“Any support to the Championship is graciously received,” he said.

“To have The Harris Group/Maxus reach out a helping hand to the club in these difficult financial times is humbling. We must be doing something right!”
