“We’ve been involved with the MINI CHALLENGE Championships for many years and see a good percentage of the drivers go on to BTCC, GT, TCR, Porsche Cup and W Series.”

Antony Williams, Championship Promoter at MINI CHALLENGE added: “We are delighted that Mintex has decided to partner with the MINI CHALLENGE again for 2021. To have the brand as part of the team once again helps to maintain the format that assisted in making the MINI CHALLENGE as successful as it has been.

“2021 is shaping up to be as strong as ever, which is in no small part thanks to Mintex and its continued support.”

Mintex has also sponsored series front-runner Lewis Brown in the JCW MINI CHALLENGE championships for the 2021 season. The 22-year-old is part of the LDR Performance Tuning line up for a third year in a row.

Brown had a breakthrough 2020 campaign, securing himself a place on the top step of the podium for the first time. The young driver is ready to get back on the track to battle for as many race wins and podium places this season as possible. Brown’s car features Mintex branding and is fitted with Mintex brake pads and discs.
