Mark Sims began racing in 1995 in a Mini 7, debuting at Brands Hatch. He has raced every season since and has always remained loyal to the Mini 7 Racing Club, driving in either a 7 or a Miglia.
To date his strongest performance has been in the 2008 season, where he finished 4th in the Miglia championship. In 2009 he has had 3 podium finishes and has equalled his 4th place in the championship for a second year.
His current car was built from the floor upwards following significant damage to his original mini during an unfortunate triple role at Thruxton race circuit. The rebuild was carried out by Pitstop Racingï¿½s Ralph Saunders and Darren Thomas and is to touring car standards.
The car has achieved club awards for the best prepared car for 3 consecutive years and is much admired up and down the paddocks of the UK.
