Su­per and Mighty Mi­nis split grids

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.

The Mighty Mi­nis class has en­joyed more en­tries
