The electric Mini Cooper SE is making its way to motorsport. Even if it has a small battery, the car can provide a lot of fun.

Following its announcement in March, the MINI Electric Pacesetter, inspired by John Cooper Works, is making its UK debut at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The MINI Electric Pacesetter is an extreme version of the brand’s electric model, which has been designed and developed as the new Safety Car in the Formula E. It will take to the infamous Goodwood Hill Climb during the racing weekend with MINI ambassador Charlie Cooper, grandson of John Cooper who inspired the John Cooper Works division of MINI, at the wheel. It will also be available for a closer look at the First Glance Paddock.

On the MINI stand, the full model line-up will be showcased, including the newly launched MINI Hatch, MINI Convertible and MINI Electric, alongside the MINI Countryman SUV and the distinctive MINI Clubman.

MINI ambassador and rally legend Paddy Hopkirk, who famously won the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally in the classic Morris Mini Cooper S Mk1, will be available to meet the public and sign autographs on Saturday 10th July.
