Super and Mighty Minis split grids
Super and Mighty Minis will have split grids for the first time this season at the Brands Hatch Mini Festival meeting next weekend.
The Super category in particular has struggled for entries this year with just four cars taking part in the first round after a switch from the BRSCC to BARC over the winter and a delay in the championship permit being given.
But since then numbers have built up and organiser Rodger Tello is confident that can continue.
“It’s onwards and upwards,” he said. “The atmosphere in the paddock has been fantastic and the racing has gone back to a ball of cars at the front rather than two cars off in the distance. Having done this for 21 years I know you have those drops [in entries] sometimes.”
There is set to be 12 Super cars in two standalone races next weekend, with over 20 expected in the Mighty division. Tello is currently unsure if the grids will still be separate for the remainder of the year but said if the numbers continue to increase the championships will have individual races.
