The Mini Se7en Racing Club are expecting a record entry of more
than 50 cars to compete at the inaugural Brands Hatch Mini Festival
on 16/17 June.
The famous club, which has been organising Mini races since
1966, has been overwhelmed with entries for the two scheduled Mini
Se7en and Mini Miglia races at the Kent circuit. More than 50 cars
are due to take part throughout the weekend, a sight which hasn't
been seen since the early 1990s.
Amongst the bumper entry for the event is Peter Baldwin, who is
arguably one of the most successful Mini racers the marque has ever
seen. Baldwin has returned to racing this season after spending
four years away from the track and will certainly be one to watch.
With such a big turnout for the event, the action is set to be
intense around the 1.2 mile Indy circuit.
Min Se7en Racing Club organiser Colin Peacock said: "We are
extremely thrilled with the entry for the Brands Hatch Mini
Festival. The event has really captured the imagination of Mini
racers and we have more cars for this event than we did for Mini's
"Mini racing is always close and especially so around Brands
Hatch so we should put on quite a spectacle."
Discounted tickets are available up until Wednesday 13
June direct from the circuit by clicking
