Mini Festival - Brands Hatch
Brands Hatch (Indy)
Saturday 10 - Sunday 11 May 2014

The third Brands Hatch Mini Festival will switch the focus onto the track on Sunday 11 May, providing a feast of door-handle-to-door-handle racing from the UK's favourite little car on the Indy circuit.

The Power Maxed MINI Challenge will represent the BMW MINIs, the fastest championship of Minis new and old in Britain. Mini Se7en returns once again with its rapid modified Minis, 48 years since they debuted at Brands Hatch in 1966.

The powerful Mini Miglias, the Super Mighty Minis and the historic Sanwa Trophy will also entertain fans of Mini motorsport.

*Every Mini owner will receive free admission if they arrive at Brands Hatch in their Mini, and passengers can save on admission too. Click HERE for more information.

ADVANCE BOOKING HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT THE GATE.

Power Maxed MINI Challenge

MINI Challenge is fast becoming one of the most popular one-make series in the UK. Two full classes of turbo-charged JCWs and normally-aspirated Coopers pack the grids, with the championship winner coming from either class.

Dunlop Mini Se7en Championship

Mini Se7ens aren't to be underestimated as they're capable of achieving 0-60mph in just under seven seconds and have a top speed of around 110mph. These relatively affordable machines provide great entertainment for drivers and spectators alike.

Dunlop Mini Miglia Championship

These Minis run with modified 1293cc engines and combined with a lightweight 660kg chassis, this allows them to accelerate from 0-60mph in less than five seconds. They are also capable of speeds in excess of 120mph.

Super Mighty Minis

The Super Mighty Minis made their Brands Hatch Mini Festival debut in 2013 and they're returning for more bumper-to-bumper racing in 2014. The 1.3-litre modified Mini Coopers are aimed at drivers looking for their next step in motorsport on a budget.

Mighty Minis

Mighty Minis debuted at the Mini Festival last year and the championship gives novice racers a first step onto the racing ladder. The cars are based around road legal Minis built from 1991-1996 with a few safety and reliabilty modifications.

Sanwa Trophy

The ultimate test for Mini racers, the Sanwa Trophy, is a 40-minute endurance race for original Cooper Ss. The win was decided by just 0.2s in 2013 after 40 gruelling minutes, and only 10 seconds covered the top six!

Anglo French Battle

Pre-66 Minis covers the first seven years of production, which ensure that the cars are kept as original as possible. The best cars from the French Trophee Mini Classic series are joining the grid to make this a true Anglo French Mini battle!
