EVENTS AND SHOWS
MINIS TAKE OVER
In 2017, Lohen attended a couple of events within the MINI Calendar. One of the biggest of the year was the MINIs take over event, which took place at Goodwood Motor Circuit. This event was run in support of St Barnabas House Hospice Charity, who specialise in end of life care for adults with life-limiting conditions, and over £2500 was raised.
With more than 100 MINIs in attendance, there was plenty to see and do. Our Track Car Polar Bear accompanied our team on the trade stand, which was displaying a range of high-end performance products sold online and fitted at Lohen, while our demo car Chilli was showing off what she can do on Goodwood’s historic track. Both Chilli and Polar Bear are Gen 2 R56 Cooper S MINIs that have produced highs of over 270 bhp. Currently, Chilli has a hand built fully forged engine, a Quaife Automatic Torque Biasing (ATB) differential and TTV clutch kit that was specifically designed to tolerate the higher than standard Torque output, an Akrapovic exhaust system and a vast range of other modifications that work together to produce approximately 278bhp and will certainly leave a smile on the face of anyone who drives her.
