The 2019 HRCR Mini Sport Cup will be celebrating both sixty years of the iconic Mini and ten years of the HRCR Mini Cup by offering a Championship that is open to all Mini and Mini derivatives built up to the end of 1990.  The Championship will again be supported by Mini Sport of Padiham who can support our competitors with a wide range of products and services including their workshops and rolling road facility.

This coming year we will be returning to the EMCOS stages at Down Ampney after a break and we have a new event for the Championship the Brawdy Stages at Haverford West which was greatly enjoyed by competitors in the Stage Masters Championship in 2018.We will be returning to the the Tour of Flanders who also be celebrating their 60th Anniversary and have assured us of a great welcome. Just a short drive on other side of the Channel this is an excellent event for a first foray into continental rallying.

The HRCR Mini Sport Cup is a closed to club Historic Rally Championship for HRCR Club members. The format is an 8 round Championship over 7 events, with the Tour of Flanders counting as two rounds. The best 5 scores to count. The rounds have been selected for their value for money, geographic location and variety, to provide competitors with a real challenge within a reasonable budget.

To enter the Championship you will need a minimum of a Motorsport UK National B Stage Rally Competition License (National A required for the Tour of Flanders). Your car will need to comply with Motorsport UK historic rally vehicle categories 1,2,3 and 4 and stage rally regulations.

The Championship will incorporate an open class for Classic Minis that do not fully meet the Historic requirements, these cars will compete only for their class award and will not be eligible for overall awards.

Advice on technical matters and on rallying in Belgium is available for all competitors from our experienced team.

There will be an award for the highest placed competitor that is aged under 25 at the start of the year.

Competitors will again have product support from Yokohama Tyres and Penrite lubricants.
