The Mini Festival is a great weekend of Mini racing in which the Mini Challenge JCW class was the star attraction. This year the Festival took place on the Brands hatch Indy circuit and there was great racing throughout the weekend.
Qualifying was very close with only 1 second covering the top 17 cars on the grid. Unfortunately I got held up on my fastest lap and could only manage 16th place.
Race 1 was very close, I had to take avoiding action in the first corner as 2 cars went off the track which dropped me back a few places which I managed to make back to finish 12th.
Race 2 wasn’t so good as I was shoved off the track on the exit from Druids and into the tyre wall on the second lap and rejoined the track in 26th place, but managed to make back 6 places to finish 20th despite the car having sustained a lot of damage in the early accident.
Race 3 was my best race of the weekend, starting 20th on the grid I had a great race through the field and finished 11th overall. Now I am looking forward to the next race on the Brands GP circuit.
