Owner Driver Support

You may be in a position to provide your own MINI to take on track, in which case Lohen can offer the complete range of services to help you achieve fantastic results.

Car Race

The Team is able to offer Owner Drivers trackside support for your MINI, with experienced engineers and mechanics on-hand to hone setup and make adjustments at a moments notice. We take all the pressure off by handling the manual jobs allowing you to concentrate solely on driving and enjoying your racing.

Our Race Support also provides assistance in the event of on-track incidents. In our experience, timescales at Race Weekends can mean added pressure if repair is necessary: with a trained team on hand, you can rest assured your MINI has the very best chance of getting back to the grid, even with the most significant of setbacks.

We detail our full range of services below.

Owner Driver Support

All of Lohen's track support packages are tailored to your needs and can include all aspects including logistics. As part of our owner-driver support package Lohen will ensure your race experience is as stress free as possible. Obviously, getting the most out of your MINI is the priority and we will work with you by providing advice and setup as well as data analysis.

The Lohen team will take care of all the maintenance tasks such as your MINI's pre-race preparation, re-fuelling and adjustment of tyre pressures, as well as investigating and rectifying any major problems in the shortest possible time to get you back onto the race track. Lohen has access to a large range of the necessary championship parts at all times in our race support vehicles to keep you running for the entirety of the race event.
