MotoGP Riders Hit The Track On Mini Electric Motorcycles

They may be elite grand prix motorcycle riders going to battle on two wheels around Motegi - but this was anything but a MotoGP race.

While the Japanese Grand Prix is this Sunday, eight MotoGP and Moto2 riders including Britain's Scott Redding elected to get the competitive juices flowing early at Motegi with a bizarre race on mini motorcycles.

Racing on electric mini-bikes, the riders teamed up with local children in a 'tag-team' grand prix around Motegi's go-kart circuit.
