MINI to Offer B-Spec Race Car

Posted On: Nov 21, 2011 By: Charles Kayajian  Category: MINI Cooper News

A while back we featured a “how-to” article for weekend warriors interested in outfitting their daily driver for some amateur club racing. It seems MINI is keenly aware of the motorsport enthusiasts within their community, as they have recently unveiled the MINI Cooper B-Spec Race Car.

For those unfamiliar, B-Spec is new racing classification sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), NASA, and Grand Am, which features production-based vehicles with fixed levels power output. The B-Spec class is designed to (a) give racers an affordable track vehicle and (b) insure that the playing field is (somewhat) level for competitors. Drivers are allowed to make safety and chassis modifications, but engine power is restricted. The SCCA hopes that B-Spec class racing will draw new participants to the sport by offering an affordable, entry-level racing option.

MINI will begin selling its B-Spec Racing vehicles at MINI of Charleston (Charleston, SC) by the end of 2012. MINI will also sell conversion kits for 2007-2012 MINI Cooper hardtops, allowing current MINI owners to retrofit their vehicles to meet B-Spec qualifications.

“B-Spec racing is a great fit for MINI because the car is developed with racing heritage in mind and the races are run with vehicles very similar to those already sitting in the driveway,” notes Jim McDowell, Vice President MINI USA. “Getting involved with B-Spec racing offers a fun and competitive race environment without requiring MINI drivers to make large financial investment to make their car a serious competitor.
