The 2012 Championship

The new-style Minis compete in a hotly-contested eight-round series, with two weekends taking place at premier northern English circuits. The championship also offers separate cup competitions for Newcomers and Ladies to compliment the overall Championship title. One of the highlights of the action-packed season is the opportunity to compete at the BTCC meeting at Croft, North Yorkshire on 23/24 June and on home soil – Knockhill – in August (25/26).
