Irish Minibike champ Hara wins TDR300 ride for 2020

In Ireland, News, Ulster SBK

TEEN racer Lee Hara will take the reins of a Tianda TDR300 next season after winning the Irish Minibike Championship scholarship this weekend.

The 14-year-old was selected by Baylon McCaughey and four other independent judges out of a field of eligible Junior riders, coming out on top with prize-winnings including use of the TDR for the 2020 short circuit season as well as entry fees for all IMC Events for next year.

Hara, who clinched the IMC Senior Stock 140cc championship in both the regular and winter series this year, is set to contest the new MOTO-ONE class, formerly known as the Junior Cup, as he pilots the 279cc four-stroke Tianda.

And MCUI (UC) Tarmac Committee Convener Mark Sanlon believes the inclusion of the new bike marks a significant milestone in junior development.

“It has been 25 years since a new purpose built bike has been introduced to our Short Circuit Championship,” he said.

“The inclusion of The Tianda TDR 300 is a major step forward for the National Championships and will be a catalyst for the grow of our grids.”
