Fastest Mini in the World
New Headline Sponsor Secured For 2021 Event
Since its production, the Mini has been renowned as one of motorsport’s leading racing marques. The Fastest Mini in the World Race™, which will take place at the Mini Festival Brands Hatch on the 22 August, celebrates this accolade by inviting drivers with highly developed racing Minis to compete for the title. The race is becoming increasingly popular with over 9,000 signed up Mini racers and enthusiasts across social media.
For 2021, Castrol Classic Oils will be the lead sponsor for the Fastest Mini in the World Race. Martin Bentley of Castrol Classic Oils says “We’re delighted and excited to confirm our involvement with this prestigious event. Our longstanding association with the Mini marque, that includes development and success in motorsport, underlines our continued enthusiasm to maximise competitor and spectator enjoyment.”
The front running cars are either Spaceframe and Supersaloon classic Minis boasting 200-300+ bhp. These cars reach speeds of up to 130mph on the Indy Circuit at Brands Hatch before turning into Paddock Hill Bend – thrilling stuff for both drivers and spectators!
