The MINI challenge series. Leave the racetrack rocking.

From pole position success at the 1962 Tulip Rally to home victories in the 2012 and 2013 Dakar Rally. It’s safe to say, motorsport is in MINI’s DNA. Since 2002, MINI have been working in collaboration with the MINI Challenge Team to bring passionate car fans some of the most fun, colourful and exciting races in the motorsport calendar; the MINI Challenge Series. And as of 2017, the MINI Challenge races within the prestigious British GT Package. The John Cooper Works class is the ultimate in MINI racing with slick tyres, 3-way adjustable dampers, a sequential gearbox and a 255bhp 2-litre MINI TwinPower engine tuned to deliver manageable torque and a wide rev-range.
