[Official Release] MINI is represented by a strong contingent of five cars at this year’s 24-hour race in Barcelona. Great things are expected of all four teams on the endurance circuit.
Class victory, class victory, class victory: all four MINI teams lining up at this year’s endurance event – a total of five cars – have made it their mission to send the fastest car in their category into action at the 24-hour race in Barcelona from 7th to 9th September. They face tough opposition in the Catalonian capital, with 18 driving crews starting out in the A2 class at the demanding “Circuit de Catalunya”, which for many years has regularly hosted Formula One races. The five MINI crews will have to show real stamina. They cannot afford to let the many Renault Clios in their class out of their sights, particularly as they are equipped with sequential gearboxes to make their drivers’ lives easier.
