Super Mighty Mini star Seyfried to Mini Challenge
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.”
