The MINI CHALLENGE will continue its partnership with Credo Asset Finance into the 2020 season, as it makes a historic switch to the British Touring Car Championship support bill for the first time.

The 2020 campaign will be a pivotal one in the near 20-year history of the MINI CHALLENGE, as both the top-flight JCW and foundation Cooper classes take their place on the biggest stage of British motorsport.

Such moves can only be made possible by the support of a key set of Series Partners, and Credo has already played a major role in helping both the JCW and Cooper fields develop into two of the best touring car feeder categories in the country.

That partnership will only get stronger with the confirmation that Credo will renew its backing of both championships for the 2020 campaign.

Credo specialises in a wide range of financial solutions, assisting industry sectors such as construction, agriculture, technology and renewable energy as well as automotive and motorsport products.

MINI CHALLENGE Promoter, Antony Williams, said: “The 2020 season represents a big step forward for the MINI CHALLENGE.  We’ve worked hard over recent years to develop both the JCWs and the Coopers – and also the Cooper S class, for older JCW variants – into professional and competitive places to race, allowing drivers of all walks of life and budgets the chance to learn and develop their skills in a fun and friendly environment. Having the support of brands like Credo Asset Finance behind us only strengthens that position, and we’re massively exited to have them onboard again for 2020.”

Credo Asset Finance Managing Director, Simon Gray, added: “Sponsoring the Mini Challenge has been great fun. The events are brilliantly put together and it has in-turn given us the chance to sponsor some young racing talent across the country. This has led us to finance several race cars for competitors and has proved to be a great entry point for our move into motorsport finance. It’s been a fantastic relationship so far and we’re very much looking forward to continuing it next year.
