What is The Mini Endurance Challenge?

The Cascadia Mini Endurance Challenge is a motorcycle endurance racing series for minibikes, mini motards, and scooters.

For 2019, CMEC will consist of three 6-hour endurance races held at Tri Cities Kart Club in Richland, WA.

Endurance racing offers unique challenges and growth opportunities for riders. Team strategy, pit strategy, maintenance, and consistency are all important to win an endurance race, and riders on the team will get as much racing seat time in one event as they do in an entire season of sprint racing.

A team:

Although it is possible to ride all six hours of the race solo, the spirit and intent of the series is team racing. Teams of 1-6 riders are allowed. Riders younger than 14 are allowed but must talk to the Race Director and be checked out to race.

How much does it cost?

Cascadia Mini Endurance Challenge is working to keep costs as low as possible for racers, so prices may change based on the number of previous entrants. Provisional costs are $145 per team and $35 per rider. This means:

    • A 1-rider team will pay $180 total.
    • A 2-rider team will pay $215 total, or ~$107/each
    • A 3-rider team will pay $250 total, or ~$83/each
    • A 4-rider team will pay $285 total, or ~$71/each

With three riders, each rider will get 2 hours of race time.
