Racing in the MINI Challenge

Charlie Cooper, the Co-Founder of Cooper Bikes and grandson of John Cooper, took up racing last year. MINI followed his story and has published a short film about his journey. 

From getting to grips with Paddock Hill bend at Brands Hatch, to leading in Monza, Italy in a full-bred John Cooper Works race car, the season of racing had it all.
