THE MINI CHALLENGE – A NEW DECADE, A NEW ERA

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.

2021 will be the season where we expect the full marketing potential of the BTCC Support package to be fulfilled following the restricted 2020 season. 

This year will see the JCW class continue as the natural stepping-stone for drivers with their sights set on the BTCC enjoying 7 race meetings on the TOCA package

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.

The Cooper Class provides entry-level, close, fair racing, and will make 3 appearances on the TOCA Package as part of a 7 race meeting season.

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 widespread use of control parts in areas where any performance advantage could be gained.

The Cooper S Class will be the core of a new series designed to deliver a Multi-Marque Touring Car style experience with more details to be announced soon.

The MINI CHALLENGE is ‘The Place to Race’.
