|Description||A racing class for Minis began in New Zealand in 1972 with the advent of the 850cc. During the mid 1990’s additional classes using the 1275 block expanded the series into the Super Mini Challenge. The performance of the Minis is impressive, with the top machines reaching speeds of over 200kph.
Past drivers in the series include names such as Jim Richards, Kayne Scott, Angus Fogg and Jason Richards.
The four classes of cars competing within the Super Mini Challenge series are:
Mini 7: A closely regulated formula, 1000cc race engines.
Mini Miglia: Limited to 1380cc engines.
Super Mini: Maximum of 1400cc engines.
Open Mini: Freedom of specification, only limited to a Mini body shell, a transverse engine and front wheel drive.
All classes must have rollcages, compete on slick tyres and may use competition gearboxes.
Please see the Super Mini Challenge website for more information on the series, and to get involved.
For the coming season the Super Mini Challenge wants you to come racing with us. Roll your classic or BMW Mini out of the shed and no matter the engine, no matter which model, you can come racing with us at high profile IRC meetings. We race at Pukekohe, Hampton Downs, Taupo and Manfeild from October to May and would love to have you along for one or all of the events in our series.
