About Us

Meet the team

Mad4mini Motorsport was born from Mad4Minis’ growing involvement in Circuit Racing and Rally Cross having supported drivers in MINI Challenge. MSV Track Day Trophy, MSV TrackDay Championship, CSCC Tin Tops and British Motorcross. It was formed in 2017 when it became apparent that our racing activity was too significant to just run under the Mad4Mini brand and demand for BMW MINI orientated products, services and offerings specific to motorsport warranted its formation. Thus Mad4Mini Motorsport was born and is owned and managed by Andy Montgomery, Mike Favager and Richard Heeley.

Andy is a professional Programme and Project manager having spent 20+ years within the IT and finance industries. His love for all things cars eventually brought him into motorsport where he has been competing as a driver in both R53 and R56 Minis for the last 6 years. His experience as a driver affords him the unique driver perspective of competing in Motorport and allows the team to be more empathetic and supportive of individual driver needs.

Mike has been in the motor trade since 1990 completing a full 3 year city and guilds motor vehicle qualification whilst training at an independent multi franchise on the Wirral. In 2005 Mike then joined Mini at a large dealership in West Yorkshire and has carried out many manufacturer training courses gaining BMW/Mini service technician status. Mike has also been managing service centre and workshop for a number of years which gives him the skills to be able to manage a team under the pressure of the motorsport environment.

Richard has been in the motor trade since leaving school and as worked and trained with the Mini product since 2003 completing numerous training courses with the manufacturer on both the original Mini and the new R56 MODEL. Richard is a very experienced mechanic and his technical capability is a real asset to the team.

The team have a number of experienced race mechanics available both in the workshop and out on circuit also to ensure we have the relevant levels of support available for your needs.

This team have been racing BMW Minis for a number of years and has a proven track record of success and a wealth of experience through different motorsport disciplines. If you’re looking to get into Mini Motorsport, you’d be ‘Mad’ not to join us.
