Track Day Special Edition MINI Being Created By MINI UK

MotoringFile covers the creation by MINI UK of a limited edition MINI JCW Challenge for track days. Changes made to the JCW include:
  1. The chassis has been upgraded with Nitron springs and dampers along with front camber plates. They will be fully adjustable for both height and camber. There’s also a stiffer set of sway bars to give flatter handling.
  2. Brakes are the same four-piston Brembo set-up from the JCW but the Challenge will use bespoke Mintex pads of greater bite.
  3. A real old school limited slip differential from Quaife will be standard on the car – the first mechanical differential since the early days of the R56 (sorry EVO – MINIs other than the R53 GP did have a true diff)
  4. Finally MINI UK will be fitting Team Dynamics wheels in order to save over 3 lbs per corner. They’ll be 17″ in dimeter but will a full 7.5″ white. The tire choice remains a mystery.
