Mini Se7ens head to Brands GP circuit
The Mini Se7en Racing Club will race on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit for the first time in 13 years this season after securing a slot on the undercard of the British GT Championship.
Both the Mini Se7en and Miglia grids will be combined for two races in support of the British GT season opener on the Kent venue’s 2.6-mile layout. The classes have not raced on the full GP track since September 2003, when it attracted a 52-car entry.
“The addition of Brands Hatch GP to the calendar really adds something special,” said commercial manager Colin Peacock. “We had a large gap between round one in March and round three in May, and Kane Astin [Miglia regular] spotted this event. We managed to get on it.
“The track will work brilliantly for Minis as it’s fast and flowing, so we should have some good slipstreaming racing. We averaged 39 cars across 2015, we’re hoping to get that up to 45 this year.”
