In brief: The open modified class (based on the A115 engine) will be raced
during the standard class races and is less about the racing and more about
innovation. Winners of this class won’t necessarily be first across the line but
those who demonstrate the Kiwi ‘can-do’ attitude.
Aim:
  • To encourage pupils to identify and research ways by which they can
     improve the performance of their mini bike.
  • To encourage original thinkers who will plan and carry out the
     modifications themselves
Criteria which gain merit:
   •     Identification of shortcomings of existing motor or chassis layout/
         design.
   •     Identification of ways by which the recognised short comings can be
         rectified.
   •     Explanation and evidence to show how the pupil has modified the
         motor or chassis to produce a better machine.
Note:
We will be looking for a hands-on “I can have a go” attitude. This prize is
aimed at pupils who will try to modify the components themselves. Not those
who simply purchase bolt-on extras, or those who pay others to do the work
for them. A ‘John Britton’, backyard kiwi attitude!

How to enter
  • Students should discuss their ideas with their teacher to verify whether
     or not their proposal meets the criteria. We don’t want students to be
     disappointed to find they don’t qualify after they’ve spend lots of money
     on add-ons.
  • When attending scrutineering (19th October) students should submit
     their modification entry form complete with the authenticity statement
     verified by their teacher.
