Minis Return to Oulton and Castle Combe in 2012

The Mini 7 Racing Club has unveiled their provisional calendar for the 2012 Dunlop Mini Se7en and Mini Miglia Challenges, with a return to Oulton Park and Castle Combe, two of the most popular circuits for the Mini’s with live television coverage for May event at the Wiltshire track.

With an early start, the cars will line up on the grid with a single race for each series at Oulton Park for Round 1 on March 24th. The next two rounds will be held at Donington Park, with two races for each championship on the highly popular National Circuit.

Round 4, on Bank Holiday Monday May 7th, sees the Dunlop Mini Se7en and Mini Miglia Challenges return to Castle Combe after a year’s absence. The event will be filmed and broadcast live on Motors TV.

Rounds 5 & 6 will be at Brands Hatch at the inaugural Mini Racing Festival, which promises to be one of the highlights of the club racing calendar at the Kent circuit with strong support from MSV who hope to build on their success with the Lotus Festival, to make the MSV Mini Racing Festival, a huge event.

Snetterton will then host Rounds 7 & 8 in July on the 200 circuit, with the high speed Thruxton hosting the next two rounds in August as part of the high profile CSMA event.

The final two races of the 2012 season will once again be at Croft, which hosted the exciting 2011 finale.

Nick Cooke, Chairman of the Mini 7 Racing Club, said: “The 2012 calendar for the Dunlop Mini Se7en and Mini Miglia Challenges will appeal to drivers, teams and fans alike with two great circuits, Oulton Park and Castle Combe, back on the calendar. The live TV coverage at Castle Combe will be an added bonus for our members and we are also looking forward to the Mini Racing Festival as Brands Hatch in June.”
