The Mini 7 Racing Club has unveiled their provisional calendar for the 2013 Dunlop Mini Se7en and Mini Miglia Challenges, with six double header meetings which includes the Mini Festival at Brands Hatch in June and a trip to Zolder in Belgium in August.
The season gets underway at Donington Park on the 13/14 April with two races
Rounds 3 & 4 will see a return to Rockingham on the 11/12 May, the first time since April 2010, at at the Northamptonshire track.
Rounds 5 and 6 will be at Brands Hatch on the 22/23 June for the second running of the MSV Mini Festival, which proved to be a huge success in 2012.
Rounds 7 and 8 will be at Snetterton on the longer 300 track a month later on the 13/14 July.
Rounds 9 and 10 will see the Mini 7 Racing Club head off into Europe once again, this time a new venue with two races at the magnificent Zolder circuit in Belgium, the first time the Mini Se7ens and Mini Miglias have raced at the former home of the Belgian Grand Prix.
The season finale will see the Minis return to the spiritual home of the Mini 7 racing Club, Brands Hatch, for the final two rounds and championship deciders.
Nick Cooke, Chairman of the Mini 7 Racing Club, said: “The 2013 calendar for the Dunlop Mini Se7en and Mini Miglia Challenges will appeal to drivers, teams and fans alike.
“The MSV Mini Festival was a huge success for the club in 2012 and we are pleased to going back in 2013. Obviously the other highlight of the calendar is the trip to Zolder. We usually race at Spa and so the change of venue will be interesting and provide a new challenge for the teams and drivers. We’re sure to have a good turnout for the two races in Zolder.
“We are also extending our Invitation Class in 2013 and will make it more attractive for classic Minis from other championships to come and race with us for one or two events. All in all, it should be another great year for the Mini 7 Racing Club, just like the previous 47.”
