the flying panda's new colour scheme after repairs

Round Three of the Mini Challenge took place at Brands Hatch Mini Festival, one of the biggest events in the Mini Challenge Calendar.

The circuit can be extremely challenging as Andy knows only too well, having served as senior clerk for the meeting last year. Spurred on by his success in round two Andy was keen to test the Flying Panda’s limits. Unfortunately the notorious Paddock Hill Bend got the better of him and saw Andy skidding through the gravel and into the crash barrier, bringing his race to end.

Fortunately an overnight repair job saw the Flying Panda back on the track (complete with new green bumper) to compete in the last two races of the weekend. See the full race report and vlog on Andy’s website.

The next round of the Mini Challenge is at Croft on 17th-18th August. You can follow Andy’s progress on our social: Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.
