Countdown to:

MINI RX

MINI RX Supercar

JRM Racing is competing in the 12-round FIA World Rallycross Championship in 2016 and is aiming to make its MINI RX Supercar a regular point-scoring finisher in the series.

JRM’s launched its rallycross programme in 2015 and used its MINI RX Supercar, derived from the successful MINI John Cooper Works World Rally Car, at five World RX events during that season.

The car was instantly successful, winning a maiden heat race at its first-ever event in Hockenheim, Germany before then going on to qualify for the event final at Lydden Hill in the UK. 

The FIA World Rallycross Championship is currently the fastest growing series in motorsport and JRM was keen to build on its successes in 2015 by commiting to the series as a full season entrant in 2016.

JRM's MINI RX Supercar has been the subject of a continuous development programme since it made its competitive debut in 2015 and this process has been spearheaded by JRM’s head of Advanced Engineering, Paul Eastman. Paul was responsible for co-ordinating the engineering effort that was required to produce the original MINI WRC in 2011.

JRM's MINI RX is the only car of its type on the World RX grid and its distinctive styling, impressive performance and results at the highest level has helped it develop a cult following across the world.

The car’s 1.6-litre BMW turbo engine produces around 480 bhp and this, coupled with the its excellent handling and driveability characteristics, means the MINI RX is more than a match for the other cars on the World RX Supercar grid.

And when the team introduces a brand-new two-litre custom engine early in the 2016 season, the MINI RX is tipped to make the most important performance step of all – to becoming a World RX event-winning package.
