MINI LIBRE LAUNCH
M7RC goes back to the future.
The Mini Seven Racing Club has announced a new Mini Libre formula for the 2017 season. This new formula, meaning ‘free’ or ‘liberty’ - is the club’s modern-day interpretation of those heady days of Free Formula and Special Saloons in the late-1960s/early-1970s, where Mini tuning really began to push the boundaries of performance.
Mini Libre will once again offer race-goers the spectacle of power-packed grids, running with the Mini Miglias at each of the 14 championship rounds. As the name implies, the Mini Libre formula is open to all racing Minis, and bar having to run with 10-inch wheels and be powered by a traditional A-Series block, it will be a free formula. This should mean excellent racing, involving enthralling Mini variants and A-Series developments of the modern era. Alongside the 2017 Mini season awards, with the winner receiving the prestigious ST Trophy. The provisional date for the first round at Castle Combe is April 17.
