Hay everyone the time has come it's our first race bank holiday Monday the 21st progress has been made with the mini, just waiting for the engine to finish mini off and load up,
just giving you guys a heads up about the race make sure you pop over and say hi! There will be qualifying and two races on Monday plus a grid walk for our first race

 

Good luck! Let us know how you get on.

 

Would pop along, but racing myself, and missed the last 2 meetings so itching to have a go!

Hahaha how rude lol. Ive got a new 50-500mm lens to play around with so I should be able to get some decent shots. Gonna hang around quarry corner id say as its such a good corner. But will probably cover the whole track if I can

Awesome day at Castle Combe, now have reception again! Steep learning curve with the track! Managed 2in class in qualifying, DNF first race with engine problems after 4 laps and great start! The second was a tough race nursing a intermittent poorly engine amazingly managed 1st in class finishing the day on a high! And sharing the day with my beautiful daughter helping me she gets my trophy

"Mini Spares wins the mini7 S Class race at Castle Combe on bank holiday Monday! Big thank you to everyone at mini spares supplying us high quality parts in next to no time with there 24hr deliver service.
See you at Brands Hatch for rounds 3 & 4."

hope you liked the picture on Facebook mate, Ive finished all of my pics now as I had 1264 odd pics to go through. Will get them online early next week as Im away for a few days now :)

Shame on your first race though as did think you had a problem when I didnt see you come around again, Combe is an awesome track but needs a lot of respect in certain places ;)

Wow that's a lot of photos!!! Yea was gutted about DNF but it's a big learning curve and first run out since major rebuild so always going to have teething problems on to Brands and it's an awesome track :D

Good luck with Brands and Im going to try and get to Donington in August :)

Wow what a crazy few weeks! Castle combe was a push to meet the deadline and we hit it! With only a few weeks to get the mini ready for the Brands Hatch mini Festival It's been another push, engine out after finding a mechanical issue after great work from Selby engineering who build race engines it's now back in the mini!

Prep continued with clutch and braking issues at Combe a big order went in to our sponsors Mini Spare's we are very lucky to have the best parts company on our side! With a rush order of new parts with us in under 24hrs from the phone call to being on the mini awesome work from the guys at Potters Bar

So today we had a suspension Geometry session with our good friends at Track Road and Race the beast is ready to race!!!

Can't wait Brands Hatch is awesome! And that combined with it being the mini Festival really builds the atmosphere

Come see us in the paddock and say hi!

Thanks

Shaun

Round 4 of the Mini 7 Racing Club to finish the off the Brands Hatch Mini Festival yesterday was a dry but intermittent shower race we managed to qualify and start 13th out of 16 and race to finish 7th overall and 1st in class I had a great drive in the changing conditions really enjoyed running with the higher class such a steep learning curve massive thanks to Mini Spares without them we wouldn't have made it to the track! its been a busy start the the season with some last minute rush orders and minispares got them here each time in under 24hrs! we are now running an awesome engine from Selby Race Engines felt great to have under my right foot, with the help of a fantastic suspension Geo setup from Dave Yardy at Track, Road and Race massive improvements since last time we were on the Indy circuit! Thank you to everyone who is supporting me along the way and putting up with me in the garage every spare hour!
