Mintex extends support for 2024 MINI Challenge

TMD Friction UK, braking specialists behind Mintex Racing, are continuing their support for the Vertu Motors MINI Challenge throughout the 2024 season. They’ll once again be the exclusive supplier of brake pads for the entire racing grid.

The MINI Challenge features two categories: the JCW class, which serves as a stepping stone to the prestigious British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), and the Cooper Trophy class, known for its close racing and focus on fostering new racing talent.

This year, Mintex is expanding its presence beyond supplying brake pads. All participating cars in 2024 will sport increased Mintex branding. JCW championship drivers will proudly display the Mintex logo on both their number plates and front splitters.  While in the Cooper Trophy class, half the field will also feature the Mintex logo on their number plates.

Mintex also recently unveiled three new high-performance racing compounds as part of their “Achieve Legendary Braking with Mintex this year” campaign. Both the Performance Road/Track Day and Pure Race ranges have been revitalised, ensuring drivers of all levels can experience peak braking performance.

Antony Williams, promoter of the Vertu Motors MINI Challenge, said:

“Mintex is one of our longest-standing and most valued partners. The longevity of our relationship is a true testament to its strength. Their ongoing support, especially as we introduce a new class this year, is crucial. We look forward to another year of fantastic racing together in 2024.”

The three new compounds include:

MRM1805 – Pure Race:  This high-friction compound is specifically designed for the most demanding motorsport categories.  Eco-friendly and exceeding EURO 4 standards, it boasts exceptional performance without compromising on environmental responsibility.

MRM1802 – Pure Race:   Offering excellent controllability and positive feel, the MRM1802 also features a new thermal underlayer for enhanced high-temperature performance and extended pad life.  Like the MRM1805, it adheres to EURO 4 environmental standards.

MRM1801 – Road Legal:  Mintex Racing’s new medium-friction compound is perfect for performance road cars and track cars utilizing OEM brake callipers.  Following suit with its siblings, the MRM1801 is also eco-friendly, meeting EURO 4 standards.
