2020 Season Review: Mighty Minis Championship

Never short of producing entertainment, the Mighty Minis Championship made its mark in 2020 as it delivered six rounds of scintillating door-to-door action across three unmissable events.

Home to one of the most iconic cars to ever go into mass production, the one-make series continued to garner a cult following as it produced full-throttle thrills and spills at Croft, Castle Combe and Thruxton.

Like several other British Automobile Racing Club categories, the Mighty Minis Championship had been set to end its season at Brands Hatch on November 7/8. However, due to the introduction of a second national lockdown the annual pilgrimage to the Kent venue was cancelled.

After narrowly missing out on the Mighty Mini crown to Greg Daw last year, Paul Ogborn bounced back with a vengeance this year to secure the title in style.

Four wins from the first four races provided the cornerstone of Ogborn’s charge, with two points finishes at Thruxton topping up the points pot.

Elsewhere, Ian Slark prevented Neven Kirkpatrick from successfully defending his Super Mighty Mini title after producing a commanding performance from start-to-finish.

Kirkpatrick hit the ground running winning three races on the bounce before Slark came to the fore at Castle Combe with a win of his own. Adding another victory in treacherous conditions at Thruxton, Slark was crowned champion by just six points over the ultra-consistent David Kirkpatrick.
