Mini star Brown gets Chevron en­durance

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Mini Chal­lenge driver Jono Brown will join the Brit­car En­durance Cham­pi­onship this week­end at Don­ing­ton Park in a Chevron GR8.

Chal­lenge race win­ner Brown will stand in for Travis drum­mer Neil Prim­rose when he joins the Track Torque team to share the 2.5-litre V6-en­gine GR8 with Gra­ham Roberts.

Brown said: “Neil is away on tour so the team called me. I raced the Chevron a few times last sea­son and it’s great fun and very dif­fer­ent to the Mini. It’s pretty hairy on the limit as it’s very low-slung and has no trac­tion con­trol or ABS, so it’s a real driv­ers’ car.

“I’d like to do some more sportscar stuff this sea­son, but the Mi­nis are our main fo­cus.”
