In a regular summer charitable act in his homeland of Japan, Shinya Nakano was present at the ninth instalment of a pocketbike competition organised by the Konica Minolta Honda rider this weekend.

The 29 year old was joined by 250cc riders Hiroshi and Shuhei Aoyama and Yuki Takahashi at the Mobara Twin Circuit, itself the scene of the early stages of Nakanos career, to watch 170 boys and girls take part in the Konica Minolta Shinya Nakano Cup event.

The Honda satellite rider has had a tough time this season in his maiden year with the team, but is expected to receive more factory support after the summer break to get his 2007 back on track.
