About the MINI CHALLENGE Cooper S
Introduced in 2016, the Cooper S class is the opportunity for drivers who already have racing MINIs built to other specifications, to join the MINI CHALLENGE family.
Cooper S Class MINI’s include:
- Ex CHALLENGE R53 & R56 variants
- European specification cars
- Track Day Trophy MINIs
- SUPER COOPER Cup Cars
- F56 1.5lt Cars
Running on Dunlop Direzza dry tyres costs are kept down, whilst safety is enhanced through the use of wet tyres to enable drivers to safely race even with standing water.
Power is limited to 160 bhp per ton and 210 nm per ton at the hub, meaning that equality can be achieved and maintained without excessive engine costs.
In other areas regulations are relatively open allowing drivers and teams to enhance car performance through engineering, as well as driving. This makes the Cooper S class a very different challenge to the other classes.
