Mini challenge uk 2017

    New CHampionship on the books for 2017

    The MINI CHALLENGE is THE Championship for the new MINI in the UK
    since 2002 and has always enjoyed great grids, colourful cars and close
    racing.
    Over the years The MINI CHALLENGE has built a reputation for
    affordability, fairness and fun, by building on the iconic MINI Brand and
    benefiting from being the only MINI CHAMPIONSHIP to enjoy the support
    of MINI UK.
    2017 will be a major step forward again with the calendar increasing to 13
    events and the JCW class supporting the prestigious British GT package.
    The 2017 Calendar will see the JCW Class visit 8 circuits, whilst other
    classes will enjoy 7 visits to the best circuits in the UK.
    This season will also enjoy various prizes including a Dunlop sponsored test
    day in a top BTCC car for both the JCW Class Champion and another driver
    selected from the top 3 in each of the Open and Cooper classes.
    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’

    COOPER PRO
    COOPER PRO The Cooper Pro Class car uses the same engine
    as the Cooper Am car, but with slick tyres and control single way
    adjustable dampers. The car is best suited to those new to car racing,
    those stepping up from the Cooper Am class, those with some karting
    experience, or those who just want ultra close, fair racing on a high
    profile stage, but still with budgets under control.

    COOPER AM
    The entry level Cooper Am Class car uses a 135 Bhp 1.6lt normally aspirated
    engine, treaded tyres and single way adjustable dampers. The car is best suited
    to those new to motorsport, with some karting experience, or those who just
    want ultra close, fair racing on a high profile stage, on a tight budget.

    OPEN CLASS
    The Open Class caters for all previous MINI CHALLENGE classes and other
    R53 & R56 MINIs racing in multi-marque series.
    The Open Class delivers exhilarating performance with a regulated BHP
    per ton
    limit, but keeps running costs low through the use of treaded tyres and a flexible
    approach to parts use.
