An amazing weekend for Stuart McLaren at Oulton Park running with Mad4Mini Motorsport in the amazing livery of The Metal Store.
This was his first outing in the R53 and it’s fair to say he loved it. He achieved a good set of results in his guest appearance in the Cooper S class.
Qualified in 4th Place
Race 1 – Finished – P4
Race 2 – Finished – P2
A huge thank you to an amazing team. Mad4Mini Motorsport worked their socks off to pull it out the bag for Stuart in race 2. They got him back on the grid within the nick of time. Spectacular effort. Thanks.

Race 2 of the MINI Challenge weekend. After a red flag and restart we managed a 7th place finish.
DNF – not quite the result we were hoping for. Tomorrow is another day!
MINI Challenge – Round 2 and It’s MINI Festival @ Snetterton
We are back at one of our favourite circuits this weekend – Snetterton 300. This circuit was full of action for us last year and saw Stuart take the hat-trick in the final weekend of the season.
Testing has gone well here in the Norfolk sunshine today – but the weekend is threatening rain so best get the slicks and the wets at the ready.
Qualifying is at 11:55am with Race 1 17:05 at tomorrow (Saturday 12th)
If MINI Challenge isn’t enough then there’s loads of other racing with the Miglias and the Se7ens out to play.
We are racing with AReeve Motorsport – come down and see us in garages 1-5 next to the control tower.
A blistering start as soon as the lights went out – Stuart made 8th position after starting in 10th. He almost made 6th but it was a lively race and staying on track was number one priority.
One month until Snetterton – see you all there
Stuart is racing with AReeve Motorsport
Stuart got a good start and made it to 6th. After a bit off off roading he took a 5s penalty for exceeding track limits. Finishing in 10th place it’s all to play for in Race 2 at 17:15.
Stuart’s decided to approach the opening round of MINI Challenge 2018 as only Stuart would – as a proper challenge. He’s placed 12th for the first race at 12 o’clock. Some exciting moments for his first season out on slicks.
Testing done in the wet here at Donnington. Stayed on track despite a few sideways moments! For those that followed last season that suits Stuart down to the ground.
Qualifying starts at 9am tomorrow morning. Follow our progress in real time: http://www.tsl-timing.com/
