Hello all 

 

 

 

I finished runner up last year to Jonathan Lewis. Who owns Snetterton Speed Shop and runs Team Bailey. 

 

This year i am running a under the team banner of Bailey Caravans in the mighty mini Class. 

 

 

This is going to be an exciting year with 3 drivers from team bailey running in the same Championship, Myself 21 and 3rd season in might's, Ella Markham a 19 year old lady driver who has progressed from auto grass and is going to be a very quick this year definately one to watch and Justin Cooper returning for his 3rd season in mightys after a very big accident at brands hatch last year. 

 

Along with mini7s, Mighty minis is a one make formula and one of the most affordable ways to go circuit racing. Its always Very close racing with up to 32 cars on the grid. This year to spice things up even more we are running top 8 reverse grid and success ballast like the touring cars. 

 

Jonathan will also be running a car in the historic championship this year in europe. 

 

I will keep this post up to date throughout the season with links to incar footage, results and competitions that we will be running. 

 

Below is a link to snetterton speed shop and the mighty mini racing calendar for this season.

Look forward to hearing how you got on today Charlie.

 

Is this your car from last season, or a fresh one?

 

Mike

brand new car built by team bailey at snetterton speed shop! 

 

the day was great, honestly never driven anything quite like it. such a nice drive in comparison to my last years car. with a bit of advice from Jonathan through out the day, my times improved and it felt quick towards the end of the day. I am trying to get some in car footage up at the minute
