2020 MINI CHALLENGE

THE MINI CHALLENGE IS THE CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE NEW MINI IN THE UK, ENJOYING GREAT GRIDS, COLOURFUL CARS AND CLOSE RACING.

2020 will mark a landmark year for the series, with the headline JCW Class assuming its rightful place on the BTCC Package, cementing its status as the natural stepping-stone for drivers with their sights set on the BTCC.

With that in mind, Goodyear will offer a prize to assist the JCW Class champion in moving up to the BTCC.

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 testing, tyre use and widespread use of control parts in areas where any performance advantage could be gained.
