    RaceDepartment MINI Challenge Season 9
    After a hiatus of over a year the popular MINI Challenge returns to RaceDepartment for a ninth season for a five round online championship on Saturday evenings. Thirty of the most committed pilots will make for a full one division series for single drivers.

    The Car
    The MINI John Cooper Works in the PC Simulator AUTOMOBILISTA by Reiza Studios closely simulates the car used in the MINI Challenge Brasil. A car which puts out 211 horsepower, only weighing 1150 kilogram and has no traction control but a low level of ABS. This guarantees for super close racing!

    The calendar for this season will take drivers to five different locations.
    • Round 1 - Saturday 30/04, Guapore
    • Round 2 - Saturday 14/05, Londrina Long
    • Round 3 - Saturday 28/05, Ribeirao Preto 2012
    • Round 4 - Saturday 11/06, Taruma
    • Round 5 - Saturday 25/06, Bathurst
    Session Info
    • 18:00 GMT - Free Practice, 30 minutes
    • 18:30 GMT - Qualification, 20 minutes
    • 18:50 GMT - Warm up, 10 minutes
    • 19:00 GMT - Race, 80 minutes.

    This looks awesome. I notice the "Live Steward" in slot number 34. That sounds like a lot of fun with realtime penalties, full course yellow etc.

    Wish I could sign up. Just checked my rota and I have to work 3 of the 5 events. One maybe two I could swap but 3..... All the best to those that enter. You'll enjoy it!
