August 11, 2017 (FPRC) -- When the Racines converge on Sonoma Raceway this September 29 - October 1 for the Can-Am Mini Challenge it won’t just be as competitors, but as life-long enthusiasts celebrating the historic appeal of these classic race cars with their extended Mini Cooper family here and overseas.

“It’s not just about the racing event, but the people at the race weekend,” Racine said. “As a driver I love to win, but the real joy of racing is the camaraderie and sharing a passion and experiences.” Between now and the Can-Am race weekend Mini fans and competitors are sharing their stories on Facebook by uploading pictures and biographies at https://www.facebook.com/canamminichallenge/

The Racine family is preparing as many as seven classic Minis for the vintage racing event. Four are being driven by the immediate family: Don, son Dennis, daughter Julie and her husband John Bermann. Don’s spouse, Shirley, is also a longtime Mini enthusiast and team principal. Three other Mini Coopers will be driven by European champions. A full team roster is set for an announcement within a few weeks.

“Minis have captured the hearts and minds of all kinds of car enthusiasts since first being introduced in 1959,” explained Don Racine from the Nevada City, CA headquarters of Mini Mania. “Whether you drive one on the street, race one, or just admire the brand there is a unique bond that most Mini fans want to share.”

The Can-Am Mini Challenge is sanctioned by the Classic Sports Racing Group and celebrates the 58th year of this automotive icon with a reunion-like atmosphere that also benefits Speedway Children’s Charities. https://www.sonomaraceway.com/events/classic-sports-racing-group-charity-challenge/
