With the roadmap out of lockdown officially underway, and restrictions easing slowly but surely, it's allowing us to look forward to the Summer!

Hopeful that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones, enjoying the warmer weather and getting back to our favourite hobbies & past times... Which means RALLYING!

We long for the invigorating thrill that slamming the pedal to the metal in everyone's favourite little pocket rocket brings, so the news that the HRCR have organised a 'Covid Breakout Day' has given us a much needed morale boost!

Taking place on the 25th May at Curborough Sprint Circuit, exclusively for Mini Sport Cup Minis, the event has already attracted some of the best known rally crews from the Championship - with Cup regulars such as Clive King, Peter Ellerby, Shane Gamble, Ryan Taylor & Andrew O'Hanlon already registered to blow off those cobwebs & get behind the wheel! Entries are already full with 20 cars itching to get practicing, with a further 9 reserves waiting in the wings, this is set to be an action packed day for all involved...

Following the cancellation of Dixies Challenge, there'll be just enough time for crews to prepare before the 2021 Championship begins. Our new opening round - the Mid Summer Stages, Caerwent is set to go ahead on 20th June (restrictions dependent)! We'll be joined by all our regular competitors, along with a few newbies who we can't wait to welcome to the rally scene.

We're counting down the days...

In the meantime, if you're feeling inspired to become the next Paddy Hopkirk - or if you just want to get stuck in to preparing a Competition Mini as a project, then check out our handy guide on getting started in Mini motorsport.
