Mintex-sponsored Steve Brown returns to British Rallycross Championship tour in 2021

Date: Wednesday 10 March 2021

After a successful debut season in the British Rallycross Championship in 2019, Mintex-sponsored Steve Brown will once again swap the rally stages for circuits as he makes a return to the popular BMW MINI series in 2021.

Brown’s car features Mintex branding and is fitted with Mintex brake pads and discs for optimum performance and safety on the circuit.

The Rochdale driver’s rallying plans were put on hold last year due to the pandemic as Brown only managed two stage events and one circuit outing, meaning much of the season was spent on the side-lines. With the uncertainties continuing over the return of stage rallying in the UK in 2021, Brown has elected to switch his attention back to the track and a second campaign in the BMW MINI championship.

Brown comments: “I certainly didn’t think I’d be returning to the British Rallycross Championship tour so soon, but now we have put the final piece of the jigsaw in place I’m very excited to head back to the series for a second time.

“Rallying is going through a tough time at the moment and I wanted a little more certainty to my 2021 season after a nightmare in 2020. I’d been considering a return for a while and the more I looked into it, the better proposition it became, and it soon became an easy choice.”

Richard Barton, Category Manager Mintex Racing, comments: “Motor racing is a great proving ground for Mintex and really demonstrates the brand’s superior performance in the harshest of driving conditions.”

As part of the 5 Nations British Rallycross Championship, the hotly contested single-make BMW MINI formula will provisionally visit five different race circuits in the UK, plus a stop at the iconic SPA Francorchamps track in Belgium to close out the season.
