North Oxford MINI are delighted to support Nathan Harrison in the MINI Challenge 2016 Race Series!
British-born racing driver Nathan lives in Oxford and starting racing in 2002 with his Dad Steve at the local karting track age 6! Since then he’s won the karting British Championships, ranked 2nd in Britain 2nd in Europe and represented the UK in the world finals in Abu Dhabi.
Now he’s taking the next step to race the brand new John Cooper Works MINI Cooper in the 2016 MINI Challenge!
The MINI CHALLENGE is THE Championship for the new MINI in the UK since
2002 and has always enjoyed great grids, colourful cars and close racing.
Over the years The MINI CHALLENGE has built a reputation for affordability, fairness and fun, by building on the iconic MINI Brand.
The MINI CHALLENGE regularly visits the UKs top circuits including Brands Hatch GP, Donington, Oulton Park, Silverstone, Snetterton, plus in 2013, the Dutch circuit of Zandvoort. The 2016 Calendar features 7 meetings and premium circuits in the UK, plus a non championship race at Spa.
The multi-class structure enables drivers with varying degrees of experience and budget to be part of The MINI CHALLENGE, whilst providing a natural route for progression. As a true single make/model championship scrutineering controls mean that fairness is maintained so that drivers and teams can be sure that only skill and legitimate knowledge will have a bearing on race results. Budgets are also kept under control through restrictions on tyre use and widespread use of control parts in areas where performance advantage could be gained. The MINI CHALLENGE is ‘The Place to Race’
The first race is at Donnington Park this weekend. If you are free and fancy seeing some fantastic racing, we’d highly recommend it!
We will be offering prizes of race day tickets through Facebook from time to time through the year so keep your eyes open and make sure you tune your TV to Motors TV if you have sky or Virgin TV where an hours dedicated programme covers each race day. Channel 4 will also be showing 4 programmes throughout the season – this is fantastic news and gives the drivers some real opportunity to get their name in lights.
