It’s finally happening. Honda Grom-based roadracing is coming to Canada at a track near you, as long as you live in BC.
This summer, the Pacific Coast Mini Roadracing Club is running a new series called the Grom Prix. Kicking off on May 24 at the Greg Moore Raceway (full schedule below). Series entry includes a free race clinic for new entries and mentoring through the entire race season.
We’re not sure of all the technical regulations, but we do understand there will be a spec class, as well as an open class that encourages upgrades.
We also understand the BC series is a bit of an experiment; there may be a second series coming east, to the Ontario/Quebec region, and if that’s a success, we may even see a national series. From what we hear, the CBR250 national series is dead (don’t worry, you can still get your small-capacity kicks in the Ninja 300 series). A Grom series allows Honda to stay involved with entry-level roadracing, and with a machine that should put a smile on anyone’s face.

Sorry, thought I’d edited that out.
A 250 series is alive and well,in BC.
it’s called the 250 Gold Cup..with races running at Mission, Chilliwack & Quesnel. The series still has Honda support !
There’s a 250-300 series in ARL as well, but as far as we understand, the CSBK 250 race series is done.
If you’re ever out this way. Open invitation to attend a Pacific Coast Mini Road Racing events. Little bikes, big fun!
