Experienced racing driver Adam Cunnington is ready for his first season in the Mini Challenge.

The 49-year-old from Gedney Dyke – a company director of the family farm – has been driving on circuits since the age of 12.

He said: “I have raced and rallied at many major events.

“I raced in the FISC Sprite and Midget series, finishing second in Europe.

“I have consistently been on the podium, winning at events at both home and abroad including Monza, 
Nurburgring, Zandvoort, Silverstone and Brands Hatch.

“I have also competed in world-class historic endurance events like the Spa six hours and Nordschleife 
Marathon with a 1965 British-built Marcos GT.

“The Mini Challenge regularly visits the UK’s top circuits including Brands Hatch, Donington, Oulton Park, Silverstone and Snetterton among others.

“The Mini Challenge series supports the dedicated Mini festival race meetings and is the feature race of these events.

“It also supports the major Blancpain world sports car series at Brands Hatch with 20-plus races throughout the season.”

The Mini Challenge starts at Donington on April 23-24.

The Pure Leisure Group, owners of Tydd St Giles Golf Club, are helping to support Cunnington.

A spokesman said: “All at Tydd St Giles Golf Club wish him the best of luck and will be watching his progress throughout the year.”

Cunnington is also being supported by A Reeve Motorsport, Parc Ferme Car Storage and Absolute Alignment.
