MINI Motorsport Awards Program 2009 Season
Building upon the success of our rich heritage in motorsports, the MINI Motorsports Board at MINI USA is proud
to present the MINI Motorsport Awards Program for 2009. Our proud tradition continues as MINIs have
become well-acclimated in many forms of competitive racing while MINI enthusiasts continue to forge new
paths into new motorsport arenas. Overview:
The MINI Awards program (by MINI USA) is specifically tailored to recognize the accomplishments of private
MINI entrants in U.S. motorsport competition. Awards can be earned by placing in any of the series and classes
highlighted in the attached sheet. Please review everything carefully as several changes have been made for
2009 that may directly affect you. Guidelines:
The MINI Awards program is open to all participants driving entries permitted by this program and specified in
these regulations. Eligible vehicles include the 1959 – 2009 MINI Cooper / Cooper S hardtop, 2005 – 2009 MINI
Cooper/ Cooper S Convertible, the 2009 MINI Cooper / Cooper S Clubman and the factory-built 2009 John
Cooper Works models. Please check with your sanctioning body in regards to factory or dealer-installed JCW
(John Cooper Works) kits and how they fit in their respective classes.
Drivers must be holders of current competition licenses as required by the race organizers and sanctioning
bodies for participation in their respective events. Permissible entries must consist of integral MINI vehicles
with original MINI powertrains and cannot be a vehicle of other make or origin merely enhanced by MINI parts.
Tube-chassis cars with the likeness of a MINI vehicle are permitted only in Drag Racing classes.
In order to be eligible for MINI Awards, entrants must be running at the finish and be deemed in compliance
with post event technical inspections. “MINIUSA.com” must be prominently displayed in capital letters on both
sides as well as centered on the front of the vehicle in a highly visible location.
All MINI race teams competing must provide MINI USA, a Division of BMW of North America, LLC with
photographs of the team trailers, racecars and any other significant racing equipment that displays “MINI”, the
“MINIUSA.com” logo or the “MINI Wings” logo. These items are created by the racer to best fit their car and
are not supplied by MINI USA. Please forward digital pictures of the trailers, cars, etc. to Susan Lee at
along with your FIRST
award submission or any subsequent submission where the
paint or appearance of the car has changed or if you are using a different car. Please keep pictures under 100K
in file size. MINI has the right to withhold all awards funds until this is provided and approved.
MINI USA reserves the right to withhold awards payments to teams that do not support MINI brand standards
and values deemed appropriate by MINI. Cars, race suits, trailers and associated gear must not display any
nude, obscene or offensive words, diagrams, drawing, images or abbreviated versions of the aforementioned
or text or anything of a racist nature or purposely offensive messaging. Nor are any words or imagery
deprecating the MINI or BMW brands allowed. Note that any use of the MINI trademarks is subject to review
and must be displayed tastefully and appropriately. In the event race teams fail to do so, MINI USA reserves the
right to withhold award payments. MINI USA is in direct contact with all racing sanctions and we will find out.
To claim your Awards payment, please e-mail Official Race Results indicating your standing to
Results must be received within FOUR weeks of the race date to be considered for
payment and you must include the time and place of the competition. Please allow 6 weeks to receive your
awards bonus. If you are claiming your first award, you must submit your Social Security Number or Tax ID so
that we may set up an account to allow awards to be made. This information will be held in strict confidence.
Autocross and Road Race:
A minimum of legal finishers in each class is required to be eligible for contingency awards. FIVE finishers -
First place only; EIGHT Finishers - 1st and 2nd; TEN or more - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd; A minimum of 10 legal
finishers in each class is required to be eligible for contingency awards in Speed World Challenge, USTCC, and
Please note that private MINI teams with multiple vehicles can collect more than one award payment per race
depending upon the final results. For example, if a team fields three MINIs with three different drivers in the
Grand Am Cup and finishes 1-2-3, they are eligible for all three MINI awards payments if there are 10 or more
cars in the field. The only points used in determining the year-end champion will be that of the sanctioning
body of each series.
Only one driver per vehicle per event is eligible for payment. A private MINI race team will earn the MINI award
payment, not the individual drivers, unless he or she is the sole representative of the team. For instance, if you
have a team of six drivers racing two MINIs and they finish 1-2, the team will be paid for First and Second. If
you have three drivers racing one car and it finishes first, only one payment will be made.
Heads Up Drag Racing:
Contingency payments require TWO MINIs to qualify in a ladder to collect a Winner award and THREE racers to
qualify in a ladder to collect Winner and Runner Up. Winner is defined as a driver that runs the quickest elapsed
time with a win light that races through an entire ladder with or without a bye run. A Runner Up is defined a s a
driver that loses to the winner in the final round. Pro or Sportsman ladders must have at least eight cars. True
Street, Bracket, Open Comp or other handicapped electronic or footbrake or non-Heads-up classes excluded.
