Results

Racing at the Brands Hatch Mini  festival lived up to all  expectations. Initially it did look like the weather was going to be mixed for the two races, thankfully we dodged the rain, not so for some of the other championships, who were on track in torrential rain. .
Bobby Thompson secured Super Mighty Minis pole in his comeback race with Dan Heywood putting in a blistering lap to also secure pole in the Mighty Minis category. Nev Kirkpatrick suffered an electrical issue and did not manage a qualifying time which put him at the back of the grid for the first race. Bobby Thompson won the Super Mighty Minis race after a hotly contested effort from Ian Slark who took second and fastest lap. After a determined drive through the field Nev took the final step of the podium.
Dan Heywood won the first race and secured the fastest lap, Mark Price drove fluently and secured second with Matt Baker in third. The race was interrupted after Lisette fell victim of the paddock hill gravel trap resulting in a safety car period. As you can imagine it was a mad dash to flag.
Bobby started the second race in sixth after the reverse grid and was soon mixing it with Slark and the Kirkpatrick brothers at the front. However a failed CV joint saw him stop on the Cooper straight. The win went to Nev Kirkpatrick with Slark in second and fastest lap and David Kirkpatrick finished in third with his British flag liveried car.
Dan Heywood has had a remarkable season and added another race win and fastest lap to his tally so far this year. Mick Grover out for his first meeting this year secured second, whilst lady driver Suzy Inch did the family proud with third. Matt Baker had an off at Graham Hill bend but recovered to continue and finish seventh. A brilliant Mini festival, with great racing from all championships that took part. A must do next year.

A great weekend at Thruxton, for the seventh and eighth races of the 2021 championship season, with excitement abound. Good weather attracted a large crowd to witness the on track spectacle which included the British truck racing.

A Hot day both on off the circuit, it has been one of those topsy turvy race days where so many unexpected events happened. Again very entertaining racing and positions won and lost on every lap and what seemed like every corner. Ian won the second race will a well deserved drive from eighth on the grid, unfortunately for Nev as he retired his cars after hearing ‘funny noises’ Dan Heywood again was on the top step, but fastest lap went to ‘Pinky’ Mark Price in his newly re-shelled car. Lady driver Lisette Jane Ogborn and new driver Brynmor Pierce battled throughout the two races with Brynmor getting the upper hand and even finishing a remarkable third in his first race. a great day was spent doing what we will love and it was quite refreshing to see a much larger crowd in attendance. We now look forward to the southern event where there will be more new drivers coming out to play and much better grid sizes. Bring on Thruxton on the 3/4th July. see the points table to date below.


Well Donington did not disappoint, the fight for bragging rights for pole in the Super Mighty Minis went to Ian Slark with Steve Rideout and Stuart Combe in hot pursuit. Dan Heywood stepped up to the mark to take pole in the Mighty Minis category with new drivers finding the limits of both their cars and the circuit.
Race won was won on circuit by Ian Slark but some questionable use of the non tarmac parts of the circuit saw him rewarded with a five second penalty sending him tumbling down the order to fourth. In a sense this was good news for Nev his main rival who finished in a lowly seventh. Stuart Combe inherited the win with Dave Burns and Steve Rideout second and thrid respectively.
Dan Haywood won both races and gained the fastest laps as well, showing he is the one to beat this year. Matt Baker is best positioned to take advantage of any opportunity whilst Mark Price is in third but suffers from a major points loss at Cadwell park where he rolled his car.
The second of the two Super Mighty Minis races saw Ian Slark extend his lead not just with a race win but, Nev had an overheating issue and pulled off. Combe and Rideout denied Ian of both of the fastest laps with some great drives.
We look forward to the next event which will be held at Oulton Park on the twelfth of June where we see even more new and returning drivers. Your name could be on the points table as there are cars that can be rented through both Slark, and Octane racing. Watch the driver interviews on our facebook page its their enthusiasm and passion that is real, and can’t be replace with empty PR rhetoric. You really can do this and its great fun for the entire family. Life is too short, enjoy


 The first of the points tables for the 2021 Mighty Minis championship season. Cadwell park lived up to its expectations with thrills and spills in abundance. Fastest laps separate the two Super Mighty Minis drivers with Dan Haywood in a commanding lead after just one meeting. with more drivers starting their season at the next round at Donington Park it can only be even more fun. 


 A very wet day greeted the drivers at Thruxton race circuit and the championship table again shows new drivers on the grid. Surprise of the meeting was new driver Adam Bath who put his Octane racing hire car on pole in the Super Mighty Minis. Mark Ditchburn almost won the second Super Mighty Minis race only missing out by the slimmest of margins to David Kirkpatrick, Ian Slark won the first race. Nev sat out both races with mechanical gremlins and watched his championship lead disappear. Matt Baker won the second Mighty Minis race in front of Darren NIghtingale who had won the first encounter of the weekend, each claiming the fastest lap along with their respective wins.


After four fantastic races we are starting to see how the leader board is evolving. Here are the points after Castle Combe, our next event will be at Thruxton on the 25th October.

 2020 Super Mighty Minis championship

2020 Mighty Minis championship points table


Well after a strange start to our season we are finally able to post the results from the first qualifying sessions of the Super Mighty Minis and Mighty Minis 3020 season. We apologise for the timely delay in getting this out to you, but it has been difficult to type in wearing my ski  gloves. With everything else we were faced with, the weather was not in our favour and, the heavy snow focused the drivers concentration for the task at hand was immense. The Supers were out on track first and put on a splendid display of Mini control in the tropical conditions that we were experiencing all weekend. There were many off track excursions due to the icing up on the inside windscreens suffered by many drivers. Pole was being contested by a gaggle of cars and it appeared in the early stages that it could be one of two drivers that would clinch it. However with the treacherous conditions in the paddock and the local village, it was anyone’s guess. Slark and Ditchburn seemed to be in the groove with last year’s champion Nev Kirkpatrick struggling due to lack of sleep, a condition also being suffered by Alex Comis who finished a credible seventh all things considered.  Rees could not find his ever present book so buckled down and clinched pole in the last minute, ensuring that he did not need to quote from it.  Octane racing team owner Steve Rideout was sporting a new colour scheme for the new season and was getting to grips with the mix match of colours of the Transit tow van. We now wait to see how the drivers will fare tomorrow and hope there is hand sanitisers at all marshals post in case they need to pay a visit for a hot cuppa or a fag.

With what initially appeared to be dark clouds on the horizon they soon manifested themselves as a massive sand storm. But thankfully Bob Marsh our coordinator had been following similar weather reports in the Sahara and Gobi deserts and realised that we should to be prepared in case one day we needed Arab military tactical desert scarves so we were ahead of the game, there were even some with fetching colours worn by the ladies. The drivers left park ferme and used their sat navs to complete the first couple of laps and then followed course repeat until the fourth lap. As the snow shower eased it was obvious that exhaustion may set in due the heat. After an icy qualifying as the times tumbled due to the rain, Suzy Inch who set the pace in the first lap was soon pushed down by young Harry Miles, who put it down to using the right amount of hand sanitizer. Gerry Windet back from a bicycle accident was soon to show real pace, working with new comer Bethany Hughes for many a lap. It was Morgan Harris who stole pole in the closing stages after a few off circuit excursions due to his spots lights not working. Second was Ryan Parle in his first outing in the Slark rental car. Nick Towned was third which was well deserved after his season was cut short last year after a coming together at Donington Park.

Well everyone another great season in fact probably the best season that we have ever had. The numbers have not been as we have seen in the past , primarily to cars being sold to foreign race championships. unfortunately for those buyers they will never take part in the true Mighty Minis championship and this year has been the best both on track and in the paddock, so a massive well done to everyone who created an atmosphere where everyone can race hard and enjoy the meeting with their family and friends. We are now putting together the plans for the 2020 season with smiles abound. 



As we near our last races of the season both categories in the championship will be going down to the wire. Who will keep their nerve. With Steve Rideout putting Multi championship winning driver Neven Kirkpatrick under some pressure both on track and the points table it is all still all to play for in the Super Mighty Minis. In Class A Greg Daw has a comfortable lead over Paul Ogborn but it is never over until the last flag of the season so watch this space.  


Absolutely brilliantly close racing at Thruxton this weekend. Unfortunately the first race ended with a bit of unnecessary damage as Alex Comis on his way to a podium finish and an opportunity to further boost his championship lead, collected a spinning back marker which ended both of their weekends racing. The fist Super Mighty Minis race was won by Stuart Combes whilst the Mighty Minis race as won by Dave Burns. The second race saw Greg Jenkins win the Supers and Dan Heywood winning the Mighty Minis.


Here are the points after our event at Silverstone. The blue boxes signify fastest lap, and the green rows show the cars equipped with carburetors.  As ever the racing was noting short of entertaining. Owen Edgley won both of the Mighty Minis races after a determined Dan Heywood swapped places with him at what seemed like every corner throughout both encounters. Owen bolstered his points haul with a fastest lap in the second race. Dave burns in his second year with the Mighty Minis claimed a third and fastest lap in the first race, a big well done to him to have his first podium at such an iconic circuit.  Whilst in the Super Mighty Minis Alex Comis threw down the Gauntlet in the the first race with a well deserved win, after some great battles at the front. David Kirkpatrick suffered a CV failure which ended his race in spectacular fashion. Greg Jenkins showed that he had lost nothing in his form after the winter break with a superb win in the second race after an intense battle with Neven Kirkpatrick and Alex Comis. Nev stole second on the line with the smallest of margins. Dave Rees in his Carburetor car got the fastest lap in the second race denying Greg the extra points, however Greg did set the fastest lap in the first race. Bring on Thruxton.


Image may contain: car and outdoor If the racing at Thruxton is as entertaining as the races held at Silverstone we will all be in for a treat. Alex Comis leads the Super Mighty Minis championship whilst Owen Edgley has shown that his new ‘Gulf’ car colours are worth winning with and leads the Mighty Minis championship. Cadwell race winner David Kirkpatrick did not have a fruitful outing as his Union Jack liveried car skidded to a halt in a shower of sparks after a CV failure.


Here is the championship table after the first round of the 2019 championship held at Cadwell Park, that was nothing short of a fantastic weekend. Great racing Great paddock atmosphere and of course lots of laughter and micky taking. The first race is over and there are smiles abound. It was the first event where we have run cars with the carburetor conversion and they have fitted in perfectly. A big thumbs up from everyone. Nev wins the Super Mighty Minis class and Dan Heywood had a clean run to win the Class A category. Dave Kirkpatrick won the second Super Mighty Minis race closely followed by Alex Comis. Whilst Dan Heywood made every attempt to make it two wins but Owen Edgley held him off to the flag. Drivers highlighted in green have converted their cars to carburetor. 


After an amazing year of racing we are able to congratulate Connor O’brien on winning the 2018 Super Mighty Minis championship. His consistency and dogged determination paid off. He had nine podium finishes including three race wins . Hopefully we will see him defend his number one status next year. A massive well done to Neven Kirkpatrick in coming second and Alex Comis in third.


Here are the final points for the 2018 Class A Mighty Minis 2018 season. After 16 races the championship has been won by Stuart Combes by a mere one point. Well done to Stuart, Lee Poolman and Dan Heywood the top three in the class.


It is now Stuart Combes title to loose after a hard fought campaign he is in the best position to snatch the title form his rivals. But it is never over until the fat person sings, what ever that means. Lee Poolman led the championship at the half way point which is made even more special in that this is his second season of car racing. Damien Harrington will at best maintain third after another year of ups and downs


After a season sitting at the top of the points Jo Polley has been unseated by Connor O’Brien. Jo now lies third in the championship with a hard charging Neven Kirkpatrick in second. Whilst Mini Spares supported driver Alex Comis is a mere one point behind in fourth. The title is not a foregone conclusion as the points clearly show that the last two races at Oulton Park will be intense. Good luck to everyone. the top four are all in with a chance so bring it on.


Its safe to say the second race was a wet race. in torrential conditions the pack made their way around giving caution serious consideration. Neven Kirkpatrick reigned supreme after a few questionable moments. It was another new driver on the top step for the Mighty Minis as Owen Edgley drove a determined race showing that he is going to be one to watch in the future. We hope that his win will spur him on to more great results.


The first race at Brands Hatch saw the grid form up in mixed weather conditions, but thankfully the rain held off and we witnessed fantastic racing throughout the field. We are all pleased with the big leap that Connor O’Brien has made this season as he hones his racing skills. He recorded his first ever win against fierce opposition by the Kirkpatrick brothers with Neven getting the upper hand, come the flag. Stuart Combes had a stuttering start to his weekend but managed a great win after a race long battle with Damien Harrington and Lee Poolman

Alice Hughes became the second lady driver to have won the Mighty Mins class A title, Stuart Combes suffered a mid-season accident that put a big hole in his points hoard, however he put up a determined effort re-shelling his car in just two weeks, to show he did have a potential championship season, however he plays bridesmaid again. Damien Harrington put up a great early season effort but was dogged with unreliability, but even so he went in to the last race with a clear shot at the title, unfortunately for him a coil  failure put paid to his efforts.

img_7222After another very exciting 2017 season the Mighty Minis championship enjoyed their first outing at the Hampshire based Thruxton circuit. In the Super Mighty Minis Adrian Tuckley took pole position from Scott Kendall, Louise Inch shared the second row with Alex Comis. Whilst in Class ‘A’ Mighty Minis Greg Jenkins just edged out Sam Tomlinson for pole with Stuart Combes 0.5 of a second adrift in third.

After twenty minutes of exhilarating door handle to door handle racing. A coming together between Kendall and race leader Tuckley on the last chicane as Tuckley lost control under braking, resulted in a racing incident with both car continuing. Scott Kendal took the win from Alex Comis, Tuckley finished third in front of Louise Inch, who although leading on many occasions finished a respectable fourth setting the fastest lap with her efforts.

Greg Jenkins who had a race long fight with Tomlinson, Combes and Mark Burnett eventually snatched snatch the win. Tomlinson finished second keeping his championship chances alive, with fastest lap setter Combes, finishing third leaving him work to do if he is to remain in contention for the title. Mark Burnett and Darren Nightingale rounded out the top five.

The second Super Mighty Minis grid had the first six cars reversed putting Ben Butler on pole with Steve Rideout sharing the front row, followed by Louise Inch and Adrian Tuckley on the second row. Louise Inch was soon in front with Tuckley and Kendall in hot pursuit. However it was not long before Comis was leading with Inch down to fourth. The front four, as with Rideout and Butler swapped places on every lap. Kendall eventually wrapped up a second win and fastest lap from Tuckley with Comis in third closely followed by at times leader Louise Inch.

With the top eight cars reversed on Class ‘A’ grid Paul Ogborn found himself on pole sharing the front row of the grid with Morgan Harris. It was not long before the championship front runners were at it again, but this time also joining in the fun at the sharp end was Mark Burnett of ‘SU carburettor’ fame. They put on a fine display of drafting, smooth lines and brave out braking lap after lap. Championship leader Greg Jenkins grabbed his second win of the day. Whilst Sam Tomlinson lost valuable positions and points after losing speed due to a misfire. Stuart Combes had his second visit to the podium with a well-deserved second. Mark Burnett fared well in his return to the Mighty Minis championship with a hard fought third.

The second days racing at the Silverstone truck festival was another stunner for drivers in both classes. It’s been a crazy year so far and regardless, the racing has remained true to its origins. Affordable racing available to everyone. To have participated in the Silverstone event was a real joy and an eye opener. Steve Horne put on an event to be proud of with 15000+ spectators and a superb display of trucks in the paddock and of course the family entertainment including a..live band and fun fair.

The Super and Mighty Minis drivers acquitted themselves well and put on a fantastic display of racing on both days that they should be immensely proud of. Different winners in each class in both of their races. Louise Inch took a fine win in the first of the Super Mighty Minis championship races with Adrian Tuckley second and Ian Slark third.
The second race started with a reverse position for the top seven finishers. This put Dave Rees and Steve Rideout on the front row. It was 20 minutes of sheer joy to witness the contest unfold, where there was a new leader after every corner. Steve Dawson won it by the slimiest of margins from Louise Inch with Ian Slark enjoying his second podium of the weekend.
The first of the two Mighty Minis championship races was nothing short of brilliant entertainment for all who witnessed it and the drivers who took part. After what seemed like everyone was at the front the race settled down as the clear leaders opend up a small comfort zone to those battling for fifth. A fine display of drafting and using the expanse of the circuit to under cut on the switch back was thrilling to watch. Sam Tomlinson in his Skip UK sponsored car won a a solid battle at the line from championship leader Greg Jenkins whilst Josh Young enjoyed his first podium of the season in third.
The second Mighty Minis championship race started with a reverse position for the top seven finishers. This put Dan Bury and Jim Carolan on the front row. A fine start put josh Young in the lead going into cops as he squeezed along the pit wall past Jim Carolan. However the lead soon changed hands as Greg Jenkins, Sam Tomlinson, and Stuart Combes joined in for a for a four way scrap the saw each and every one of them lead again and again. It was Stuart Combes who recieved the laurels for a well deserved win. Sam Tomlinson was second with championship leader Greg Jenkins third.
Apart from the great racing what also stood out was the family atmosphere in the Mighty Minis paddock, friends joining in the fun with Barbeques the young children darting around on their little bicycles with laughter in the air. A great weekend thanks to everyone. Much love.
