The Mini Sport Junior Mini Cup will be run as a class within the HRCR old STAGER Asphalt Historic Rally Championship aimed at encouraging young people into historic rallying. Whilst drivers must be under 25 years of age on the 1st January 2017 to be eligible there will be no age limit for co-drivers. It will run over the 5 National B events on the UK mainland within the old STAGER Championship – dates can be viewed here.
The winner of the Mini Sport Junior Mini Cup will receive the Mini Sport Junior Mini Trophy and a supported entry on a major UK Asphalt Rally in 2018.
The base for building a Junior Cup Mini is any 998cc Mini providing it has been registered before the 31.12.90 which is the cut-off date for historic category 4b vehicles. The car must be built using a mandatory safety preparation kit supplied by Mini Sport which includes a full bolt-in Safety Devices Roll Cage, Fire extinguishers, sump guard, front disc brake kit & master cut out switch. Depending on budget you can then purchase from Mini Sport various upgrade kits for the engine, transmission and suspension. Minilite Wheels and Yokohama control tyres are mandatory and must be purchased through Mini Sport.
