Scot­tish Mini win­ners get prize test with Team Dy­nam­ics

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The cham­pi­ons of this year’s Scot­tish Mini Cooper Cup will each get a test in a Mini Chal­lenge JCW racer with top tour­ing car squad Team Dy­nam­ics.

Both over­all Scot­tish cham­pion Paul Bell and Rookie Cup win­ner Dy­lan O’don­nell will run in one of the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship’s two-litre 255bhp JCW cars at Don­ing­ton Park this week. The pair will get to drive the car cam­paigned this sea­son by Henry Neal, son of triple-btcc cham­pion Matt.

The test has been ar­ranged partly via reign­ing BTCC cham­pion Gor­don Shed­den, who is Knock­hill Cir­cuit’s com­mer­cial di­rec­tor.

Shed­den said: “I thought that it would be great to give the top guys in the Scot­tish cham­pi­onship some proper recog­ni­tion. I got on to Team Dy­nam­ics [which runs the Honda BTCC pro­gramme] and we talked about the Gen-3 Mini.

“The car is a proper bit of kit with a se­quen­tial gear­box. It’s a great chance for the win­ner of the series to have some­thing tan­gi­ble to build on. We would love to make this an an­nual award if we can.”
