About

The R53 Mini Cooper S Cup is the fastest single make saloon car class at Scottish Championship race meetings. Full slick and wet tyre options, a 1.6 litre super charged power unit and three way adjustable suspension provides drivers with a touring car experience, at a fraction of the budget.

The class launched in 2017 and has quickly gathered momentum with former Scottish and British Champions returning to race these cars around the undulating Knockhill Racing Circuit.

The speed and handling characteristics of these cars favour slightly more experienced drivers but with some coaching, an eager newcomer could also enjoy this championship. The ability to choose between slick and wet tyres – to suit the weather conditions – plus the choice of suspension settings provides mechanics and drivers with more of a set up challenge than the other Scottish single make series. This adds another dimension to this championship which rewards well rounded drivers.

The ethos around this series is to help develop any aspiring touring car driver, who want to progress his/her skills further in what is a very quick and capable racing car. The ability to run this spec car at other race circuits and series around the UK – such as British Mini Challenge – provides drivers with the chance to easily compete in other series and learn new circuits as well.

The Cooper S class enjoys a qualifying session and two races at each race meeting. This provides drivers with a real challenge on how to set their cars up for qualifying and requires them to master the skill of looking after the super quick, slick tyres through the two races.

SMRC Members Entry Fee: £275 (Qualifying & 2x 12 lap races at Knockhill)
