Woodcliff Lake, NJ -- Building upon the success of our rich heritage in motorsports, the MINI Motorsports Board at MINI USA is proud to present the MINI Motorsport Awards Program for 2008. Our proud tradition continues as MINIs have become well-acclimated in many forms of competitive racing while MINI enthusiasts continue to forge new paths into new motorsport arenas.
USTCC is proud to be at the top of the three professional road racing series to be included in the MINI contingency program. MINI Motorsports will be paying $2,000 for 1st place, $1,000 for 2nd Place and $750 for 3rd. A $4000 year end championship bonus is also at stake.
MINI USA will offer publicity support to any individual or race team that campaigns a MINI in the US Touring Car Championship with any podium finish.
MINI driver and 2006 USTCC Rookie of the Year, Rich Peterson has announced he will campaign the MIINIdeck Motorsports MINI Cooper S in the 2008 USTCC season. “We are excited that MINI USA is continuing to support the USTCC for 2008,” said Rich Peterson. MINI’s involvement with racing goes back to the earliest days of the original Mini in the early “60’s” and continues today.For more details about the program please visit www.miniusa.com
