THE MINI CHALLENGE – LISTENING TO COMPETITORS
The MINI CHALLENGE is the Championship for the new MINI in the UK, with large grids, colourful cars and close racing. Over the years, the MINI CHALLENGE has built a reputation for affordability, fairness and fun, and benefits from being the only Championship to enjoy the support of MINI UK.
In 2020, the headline JCW Class joined the BTCC support package, cementing its status as the natural stepping-stone for drivers with their sights set on touring cars.
The JCW Class sits at the pinnacle of the MINI CHALLENGE, offering a specification closer to that of the BTCC than any other single make championship in the UK, but at a fraction of the budget.
As a true single make championship, scrutineering controls mean that fairness is maintained so that drivers and teams can be sure that only skill and legitimate knowledge will have a bearing on race results. Budgets are also kept under control through restrictions on testing, tyre use and then widespread use of control parts in areas where any performance advantage could be gained.
The MINI CHALLENGE has enjoyed a new level of exposure and engagement since joining the BTCC Support package, making the championship a powerful marketing platform for teams, drivers and sponsors alike – who will now benefit from the deal to race alongside the touring cars being extended until at least the end of 2026.
