The long-standing partnership between Forge Motorsport and the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE will continue into 2024 after the series confirmed an extension of the hugely successful relationship between the two parties.

Forge has been a key technical partner of the MINI CHALLENGE for a number of years, with the company becoming a key player in the motorsport world since its formation back in 1996.

As well as providing products for use in the likes of Formula 1, the Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Rally Championship, Forge has a key role to play in the ongoing success of the MINI CHALLENGE, most notably in helping in the growth of the series as it moved onto the high-profile British Touring Car Championship package.

During the upcoming season, all cars competing in the JCW class – and also in the new JCW Sport class – will run with Forge Intercooler, radiator and induction systems, whilst Cooper class entrants will benefit from running Forge air filters and adjustable control arms across the new campaign.

That gets underway for the Cooper class in mid April at Snetterton with the JCW and JCW Sport classes kicking off at Donington Park later the same month.

Antony Williams, promoter of the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE, said:
“Our partnership with Forge Motorsport has been a fantastic success over the years so we are delighted to be in a position to extend our relationship into another season.

“All of the products provided by Forge Motorsport for our teams to use provide excellent levels of reliability and durability, both of which are key for competitors across each of the three classes. We look forward to working with Peter and his team to strengthen our relationship even further across the year ahead.”

Peter Miles, Forge Motorsport Managing Director, said:
“Forge Motorsport is proud to continue its long and steadfast support of the MINI CHALLENGE into the 2024 season as we continue to provide cutting-edge engine cooling technology to cars across the grid.

“By continuously pushing the boundaries of cooling technology and working hard on new technical innovations, we look forward to playing our part in the ongoing success of the series during the year ahead.”
