At our best under pressure

The CFE Racing Mini

Mini Speed

The CFE sponsored Mini has entered it's first event, with Tom Day at the wheel in challenging conditions. We went to Brands Hatch for the 750 Motor Club series and after two races Tom brought the car home unscathed. Well done! Qualifying was frustrating with rain setting in before he could set a flying lap and he eneded up starting just off the back spot. Lots to learn having done no wet races before.

The CFE team van was present and a welcome shelter from the elements, if not quite F1 VIP level hospitality. Fortunately race 1 actually went pretty well and he made a good start and made up a some places in the rain, hail and sleet! Race 2 was dry and we came away with 4 championship points and an intact car for the next round at Castle Combe. Result.
