Aimed at new and experienced riders alike – even attracting the likes of Tracy Moseley and Danny Hart in previous years. Held over one day, riders’ get two race runs and a chance to win some great prizes.

2014/15 Dates 

661 Mini Downhill winter series 2014 15


Chris Roberts, race organiser and the brains behind the Mini Downhill said:

“There are loads of people who ride around the area that have never raced, so we have brought a race to their local track, the tracks are fun ride but a real challenge to ride flat out to the limit. The event is open to anyone who wants to try downhill, no need for a race licence, so tell your friends and get your bike ready.”


Flowy, rooty and rocky is the theme for this winter. The races are run on existing tracks in the FoD such as Ski run, Corkscrew, Sheep Skull and GBU. The tracks are open all year round giving you plenty of time to visit and practice. All the tracks are fun and flowy providing an exciting challenge for everyone. Tracks range from one minute to two and a half minutes on average, you get two chances to race and your best time counts. The race track will normally be announced the Wednesday before and will remain open on the Saturday before taping for those who wish to visit and practice.
