Midrand, South Africa.   MINI enthusiasts who attended the 2016 SA Festival of Motoring last week, were treated to a once in a life time experience around the newly refurbished Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit. As part of their line-up at the festival, MINI South Africa hosted MINI UK Ambassador and 2015 MINI Challenge champion, Charlie Butler- Henderson. Butler-Henderson entertained local motoring media, influencers and MINI customers with taxi rides (hot laps) around the track in a MINI Challenge John Cooper Works race car built especially for the Challenge championship.

 

Butler-Henderson’s visit highlighted and showcased MINI’s steep racing heritage as well as the dynamic go-kart ability of the new generation of MINI John Cooper Works Hatch. Butler-Henderson, a well-known figure on the British racing circuit delighted audiences in the 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder spark ignition engine MINI Challenge, which generated up to 190 kW (20 kW more than a regular MINI John Cooper Works Hatch).
