As the dust settles from the championship finale at Silverstone in October, when three titles went down to the very last race, plans are already in place for 2023.
Next year will see club racers contest 17-rounds of the Mini Spares-supported National championship, from March to October, plus seven Winter rounds, four of which form part of the main season.
Within the club there are four individual classes to suit different budgets and experience, and entry numbers traditionally hover around 50-60 drivers, occasionally even more for the most popular events.
On 18-19 March, the season will kick off to the sound of straight-cut gears and Weber carbs at Silverstone on the full GP Circuit. For rounds three and four, 15-16 April, the club will head to Donington Park for the popular National Circuit layout.
Next up will be the Snetterton 300 Circuit on 13-14 May, before the Minis set to thrill their largest crowds of the year, in support of the BTCC at Thruxton on 3-4 June.
A hop across the channel will follow on 14-16 July, as the M7RC’s first visit to Zandvoort since the circuit was completely upgraded in 2021. 5-6 August will see the Minis take centre stage at the popular annual Brands Hatch Mini Festival for rounds 12-13.
Moving to 16-17 September, the club will head north east to Croft, where action is always guaranteed, before rounding off the National season at Silverstone on 7-8 October. A second visit to the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit on the weekend of 21-22 October will complete rounds five, six and seven of the Winter series.
