Aaron Smith tries a Mini Se7en

Mini Miglia champion Aaron Smith had the chance to compete in Jordan Sims' 998-engined Mini Se7en at Silverstone, and he did rather well, staying with the lead pack and even taking the lead at one stage. So after a weekend of trying his hand at our original formula, we checked in to see what he thought... So, obvious first question - how was it? I honestly had a great weekend driving the Se7en - I would recommend trying it out to anyone. I had no idea how I would get on initially, as I... Read More

Brands Hatch Winter Series preview

With the 2023 National titles decided two weeks ago at Silverstone, the Mini 7 Racing Club returns home to complete its seven-round Winter Series… When the Mini Se7en race series first began at Brands Hatch in 1966, who would have imagined these iconic little machines would still be competing almost 60 years later, let alone still breaking lap records. Yet here we are, with racing development of these classic cars continuing at pace, and three new class lap records set earlier this season... Read More

Croft Preview

A much-anticipated return to Croft should guarantee thrilling track action, as we reach rounds 14-15 of the 2023 season. And what a thrilling season it's been thus far. MINI MIGLIA Competition for top honours in the 1.3-litre Miglia class has never been as fierce, with half a dozen or more aces all capable of winning on raceday. Three-time champion Aaron Smith holds what looks like a clear advantage at the top of the standings but both Kane Astin and Rupert Deeth are also ex-class... Read More

Thrilling Thruxton

For the third time in five seasons the Mini 7 Racing Club earned an invite onto the BTCC-TOCA package, and over the first weekend in June once again proved to be the star performers supporting the headline act, with Mike and Andrew Jordan both recording double victories. The Se7ens and S-Class runners were first up on Saturday afternoon and from pole position Mike Jordan soon had his nose in front, thereafter battling mightily to stave off a concerted effort from Connor O’Brien to usurp...

Thruxton BTCC preview

Anyone who has ever watched a Miglia race at Thruxton will tell you to “hold on to your hats!”  With aerodynamics akin to a house brick, a key skill in winning here is the art of flat-out slipstreaming rivals all the way round the far side of Thruxton’s 2.356 miles and plan not to be leading before the last corner, although many have found themselves taking the chequer ahead even after a last-gasp nudge across the kerbs! Atop the standings of a champion-laden entry is Aaron Smith,... Read More

Sensational Snetterton

Four thrilling Mini races were the highlight of the BARC-run Snetterton weekend in mid-May, with winning margins amazingly as small as 15 thousands of a second! Saturday’s action kicked off with the first of the Mini Se7en and S-Class encounters, and out in front it boiled down to a straight fight between pole man Mike Jordan and series leader Joe Thompson, the tin-top old stager getting the nod by little more than a car’s length from the youthful charger, with Spencer Wanstall not quite...

We'll have two qualifying sessions on Saturday morning, two races in the afternoon, then two further races on Sunday.

Grand Prix Gladiators

The full Silverstone Grand Prix circuit played host to the opening rounds in the Mini racing calendar on 18-19 March, with packed grids on both days and action right throughout the field. With points on offer for both the main National and Winter Challenges, a highly competitive 57-car entry turned out for this BRSCC-run meeting on the 3.6604-mile track. In Saturday afternoon’s opener the watching audience – both trackside and via livestream – were treated to a pulsating 7-car... Read More
