There is a new Historic race series in France (with one round in Brands Hatch) fully dedicate to Historic “pre-66 Mini” since several years. This is the unique “only pre-66” in the world and its name is “Mini Classic”

After an exceptional 2012 season with close competition in all of the races it concluded with C. Devereux as the new champion. However, although several British drivers competed last year, and will be doing this year, they would like to see even more and are welcoming all enquiries.

Please find all the information plus photos and videos on
