You'll need to be quick if you want to purchase a Honda CBR150 road race machine – with the new three-state junior road race series about to kick off, and with a price tag of just $6990, the pint-sized racers are rocketing off showroom floors like the starter's lights have already gone green…

The new MA-sanctioned five-round Motorcycle Road Race Development Association (MRRDA) series begins at the end of March, and will see kids aged 13 to 15 battling it out in a rookie racing class that could well be their first step towards international racing success. Only CBR150s are permitted in the class, and no engine modifications are allowed, meaning kids will be able to develop their race craft without need a huge budget.

On top of this, one participant in the series will be invited to take part in trials for the Red Bull Rookies Cup in Europe, the prize including airfares and accommodation for the winner and a guardian.

According to the Chairman of the MRRDA, Paul Edwards, Australia has needed a class like this for a long time. "If we are to continue to see Australian World Champions, we need to work hard to make sure that this series is a success," he said. "With the support of our sponsors, including Honda Australia, we are well on our way to a very exciting year in junior road racing," he added.

Honda's CBR150 can be purchased from Brisbane Motorcycles, Brisbane; Mega Motorcycles, Bundaberg; Sydney City Motorcycles, Lane Cove and Liverpool; Redwing Honda, Melbourne; Honda World, Adelaide; and The Honda Shop, Perth. For more information visit: www.mrrda.com
