Scottish Mini winners get prize test with Team Dynamics
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.”
