Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Three-time Su­per Mighty Mini cham­pion Ben Seyfried will make a one-off ap­pear­ance in the Mini Chal­lenge at the Brands Hatch Mini Fes­ti­val this week­end.

Seyfried did the open­ing two rounds of the Re­nault UK Clio Cup last year with SV Rac­ing but he will now drive for Sus­sex Road and Race in the JCW class.

He hasn’t driven the car yet and his first ex­pe­ri­ence of it will be in test­ing on Fri­day.

“The Mini is quite com­pa­ra­ble to a Clio but I haven’t raced one of those for 18 months,” he said. “They are go­ing to be a whole lot of fun so I’m look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a go but I know it’s go­ing to be in­cred­i­bly com­pet­i­tive.

“I’m very re­al­is­tic about this week­end – I’m go­ing to en­joy it and do the best I can and I would love to race in Minis for the rest of the sea­son or next year.”
