Motorcycling Australia and Ohvale Australia have worked closely over the past 12 months to secure Australias involvement in the 2022 FIM MiniGP World Series. The FIM MiniGP World Series is a Road to MotoGP initiative between Dorna, FIM and Ohvale Europe which made its debut in 2021.

Australia now joins Italy, Malaysia, France, Netherlands, North America, Spain, UK, Alpe Adria, Indonesia, Ireland, Portugal, Qatar and Austria as host countries, launching the FIM MiniGP Australia Series for 2022.

The Series provides an ideal entry level platform for young Australian riders looking to begin their two-wheeled motorsport journey. The new Road to MotoGP program will take part utilising Ohvale GP-0 160 machinery designed specifically for racing on karting circuits – a perfect entry level platform for kids aged between 10-14 years old, new to the sport of motorcycling.

The winner from each national, regional or continental MiniGP Cup will have the opportunity to participate in the World MiniGP Final in Europe.

The top rider from the Australian MiniGP Series will be given the opportunity to participate in the FIM world Series Final that will take place during the week of the FIM MotoGP World Championship’s final season event.
