Countdown to Brands Hatch Mini Festival: one month to go!

Thursday, June 16 2016

The Mini Festival returns to Brands Hatch in a month's time on 16-17 July with a full weekend of racing dedicated to Britain's most iconic pocket-sized car. From scores of the classic Issigonis original, to a nice selection of modern BMW variants, there will be plenty for all Mini fans to enjoy at the Kent circuit this summer.

On-track entertainment is to be headlined by the MINI Challenge, one of the UK's leading one-make tin top championships. Such has been the demand for spaces on the grid that the entry has been divided in two, with three races for the latest John Cooper Works (JCW) model, and three more races for the Cooper S and Cooper Class machines.

The JCW F56 is the most sophisticated touring car racer you can find on our chores outside the BTCC, so watch out for plenty of close wheel-to-wheel battles and bumper-to-bumper moments.

The Brands Hatch Mini Festival will also celebrate the original favourite, with races from the Mini Se7ens, Mini Miglias, and a shared grid for the Super Mighty and Mighty Minis. Plus, there will be a Mini Endurance Race, and Mini Euro Challenge to look forward to, celebrating the original pre'66 Cooper S, and a Fastest Mini in the World allcomers race.

The Mini Festival will also feature off-track entertainment, further details of which will follow. You can expect the off-track areas to be abuzz with activity as they are filled with enthusiastic Mini owners who will turn out to show off their magnificent machines.

Tickets for the Mini Festival at Brands Hatch can be purchased at discount rates in advance and under-13s go free! For more information call our sales team on 0843 453 9000 or click here.
