About the MINI CHALLENGE Cooper
The Cooper Class car uses a 130Bhp 1.6lt normally aspirated engine, slick tyres and single way adjustable AST dampers. Offering surprising performance, agile handling and incredible grip from durable GoodYear tyres, it is not unusual to see these MINIs chasing down supercars that cost 20 times as much on test days!
The ultra-reliable 6 speed Cooper S BKD gearbox is employed and mated with a competition clutch, to improve transmission reliability without unreasonable costs.
Single way adjustable AST dampers allow handling to easily be tuned to suit driving styles and conditions.
The car best suits those new to motorsport, those with some karting experience, or those who just want ultra-close, fair racing on a high profile stage with modest budgets.
