The MINI CHALLENGE is the championship for the new MINI in the UK, enjoying great 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.
2019 will build on 2018 with the calendar again consisting of 13 events, with the JCW Class once again supporting the prestigious British GT package. The 2019 calendar will see the JCW Class with 8 events, whilst other classes will enjoy 7 visits to the best circuits in the UK.
There will also be the prize of a Dunlop funded BTCC test for the JCW Class and Cooper Pro Class Champions, plus eligibility to win the Sunoco 240 Challenge and take part in the support race to the Daytona 24 Hours.
The multi-class structure enables drivers with varying degrees of experience and budget to be part of the MINI CHALLENGE, whilst providing a natural route for progression.
As a true single make/model 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 tyre use and widespread use of control parts in areas where performance advantage could be gained.
The MINI CHALLENGE is ‘The Place to Race’.
