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.
