MINI John Cooper Works R56

The Mini Challenge cars are based on the road going John Cooper works models, with a 1.6 litre, four cylinder, turbocharged engine producing 155kW (208hp). Weighing 1150kg (2535lb), the cars can accelerate to 100km/h (62mph) in just over six seconds and reach a top speed of 240km/h (149mph). The MINI John Cooper Works in Automobilista closely simulates the car used in the MINI Challenge, which guarantees for super close racing!

STAX Racing entered two MINI John Cooper works in the RaceDepartment Mini Challenge Season 10 (RMDC S10). The livery was once again designed by Gerdoner Designs.

Our announcement post read as follows:

“We are proud to unveil our first cars used at RaceDepartment. With the livery design, we tried to combine the British heritage of the MINI with each driver’s colour of choice. As a result we will field two cars with distinctly different colours that still are recognizable as belonging to the same team.”
