THE Irish Minibike Championship has secured backing from the local government through the Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council’s Leisure Grant Aid Programme.
In a big boost for the series, bosses say the financial support will allow for continued investment into equipment and events staging as the championship moves into its third season.
The announcement follows news that the Baylon McCaughey – IMC Scholarship will continue in 2020.
Teen Lee Hara, the inaugural winner, is set to tackle his first season in the Ulster SBK Moto One class this year aboard the scholarship winner’s prize, a Tianda TDR300.
The IMC’s 11-round 2020 season is set to kick off on Saturday, April 4, at Kirkistown Motor Racing Circuit with pit bikes, Junior Elites, Gearbox bikes, Stock 140s, Mini GP and Open action on tap.
