Rockingham to Thrills on Rockingham Race Day
After the thrills of Oulton Park, Round Two at Rockingham had a lot to live up to and it didn’t disappoint. The first race of the day saw Max Bladon take the chequered flag, but only after the race was restarted when a red flag prompted a full re-grid. The second race was no less dramatic, Reece Barr, a former double Irish karting champion, secured the top spot and in doing so became the fourth winner in the championship so far. Now after two rounds only 11 points separate the top three drivers; Max Bladon is currently first, Charlie Butler-Henderson second and Reece Barr third, so it’s all to play for.
Ready to Race
Charlie Butler-Henderson and the MINI John Cooper Works make the perfect team; both car and driver bring precision, daring and experience to the track.
The go-kart handling and lowered suspension of the MINI John Cooper Works means that even the sharpest corner can be taken at high speed.
Charlie has had a blistering start to the MINI Challenge Championship. After taking pole position at Oulton Park, he made it onto the podium in third place at Rockingham.
Supercar lover and blogger Shmee150 put the MINI John Cooper Works through its paces, proving its racing credentials on the track.
Spectators were in for a real treat with two dramatic races at Rockingham. If this is anything to go by it’s going to be a nail biting competition.
