- Manufacturers Description:
Darren's first race was in 2004 in a Mini Miglia borrowed from Ralph Saunders. Darren joined Mini Se7en in 2006 and had his best year in 2011 with two podium finishes and leading the first few laps at Thruxton in August. Darren derived his interest in racing from working at Pitstop and had his first ever racing experience at Silverstone. His Mini, as modelled here, was originally built by the Haymans but Darren has since stripped it to its bare shell. Over the years he has consistently repainted, updated, and made various other improvements to it. He has carried out all work on the car including panel work, body work, re-spray and engine development himself.
Aaron began racing in 2001 in the Pro-Kart circuit when he competed in the South East Pro Kart Championships. By 2005 he was crowned champion, moving onto the Senior Open Class races and winning again in 2008. Aaron was introduced to Mini Se7en Racing in 2009 by Paul Simmonds. After a couple of visits to rounds to see what the racing was like and what went on at meetings, Aaron then went on to join the Mini Se7en Racing Club. His first Mini Se7en race was in the same year at Rockingham and he finished 12th out of the nineteen competitors. Aarons Mini cannot be missed on the track in its bright pink livery with the Great Ormond Street logo. The car has been racing since 1990 with many previous owners including Mike Jackson, Colin Peacock and Sarah Munns.
To date, Aarons racing career highlight was in 2010 when he won the last race of the season at his home circuit, Brands Hatch. Coming 2nd in the first race he went on to win the second race and made his first appearance on the podium. All of this was achieved.
