Classes

 

In either class the need for big budgets is not necessary as the cars are very affordable to buy/ build and have a proven reliability which vastly reduces the maintenance costs during a season.

Class ‘A’ is specifically designed to be a great introduction to motorsport for new drivers. Drivers have used this affordable opportunity to learn the skills necessary and to develop a media platform, important in attracting the necessary funds to continue or progress through the ranks if they wanted to.

The cars for the Class ‘A’  cars are 1275cc and Class ‘B’ are 1293cc Minis that adhere to the technical regulations designed by Mighty Minis racing.  In essence they are  Mini Cooper power units.  It is very easy to upgrade/change any post 1976 Mini model to be eligible to compete in either of those championship classes. .Carburetor fueled cars can be built up from any post 1976 Mini saloon or estate shell including the clubman. The engine and gearbox specification, suspension etc are as per the Class A or Class B cars. We believe that the accessibility of parts is far easier to build a carburetor fueled car resulting in a very affordable way of enjoying Mini circuit racing.  The tyres for the Class A are Yokohama A539 and the front suspension is fully adjustable non rose jointed, whilst the rear has adjustable negative camber and caster plates. The shock absorbers are GAZ adjustable lowered all round.

The rear and side windows are polycarbonate and the front screen is mandatory laminated version. All cars must be fitted with the control Safety Devices 6 point roll cage. All other safety equipment is per the MSA yearbook.

Class B – Super Mighty Minis offers a slightly enhanced technical specification and assists driver’s in honing their race-craft, but still adhere to the original concept of affordable competitive motorsport.

The Super Mighty Minis have a control cylinder head, which is mandatory. The engines are re-bored to 1293 cc and use the Omega pistons, control camshaft. The drop gears are straight-cut with a fixed ratio, as are the gear cluster, lay gears and differential gears. The differential unit is a cross pin-unit. The tyres are Yokohama 048R and the front suspension is fully adjustable rose jointed, whilst the rear has adjustable negative camber and caster plates and a control antiroll bar.  The shock absorbers are the GAZ lowered adjustable bump and rebound units. These  engines can be fuel injected or carburetor fueled. 

The rear and side windows are polycarbonate and the front screen is mandatory laminated version. All cars must be fitted with the control Safety Devices 6 point roll cage. All other safety equipment is per the MSA yearbook.

 With the proven success of converting cars in both championships in 2019 to run on the much trusted Su Carburetor it has truly opened up the championship. With cars now available for both championships from as little as £5k and the simplest set of regulations enabling very affordable racing,.now is the time to get that mini of yours race prepped and have some fun or just get in touch so that we can add you to our list of potential purchasers. Motorsport is becoming increasingly expensive….. don’t miss the boat.
Carburetor cars were first, second and third in the Class A Mighty Minis whilst in the Super Mighty Minis first and third were SPi spec cars with second being a carburetor fuel car.
