MINI COMP – SOLD OUT
Fun competition to finish the day for Experienced drivers only, criteria will be low/zero contact, clean driving, harsh on mistakes, in contrast to our State Series that pushes drivers really hard, we are hoping to have a much more relaxed competition where drivers can compete in a safer environment without as much concern about damage to their cars.
