LAP has entered one of their MINIs in the World Challenge TC America class. In my neck of the woods, they will be racing at Sears Point in June.

I found the announcement:
https://world-challenge.com/latest/s...a-race-series/

It may only be one MINI, but it is a MINI racing.

I could get into rooting for the Alfas as an underdog but I can also enjoy rooting for Mat and co-drivers.

A bit of bump and grind in this racing and some clearly inexperienced driving in this in both the GT and TRC classes. But strong competition and competitive racing. Will be interesting to follow.

I was surprised to see the Hyundai Veloster racing in TRC as it is only a 3 door or are they counting the hatch as the 4th door?

Also, should I start a new thread to follow the old MINI team or leave it here?
I watched some of it too, and I noticed the same car numbers as on the JCW’s....neat! I’m certain we will be seeing more of Matt Pombo but my gut tells me even Matt misses the MINI! Honda’s were fast but blaaaah looking cars for sure! More fun watching the MINIs race!
