As far as i know for the MINI Challenge in the UK you have to.....
Be able to afford to run your own racing team i.e pay a racing team there wages to keep you on the track and look after your car.
Have a car to race and afford the running costs/parts/fuel etc
if you can afford that then as far as i know you have to qualify for a license then gain experience and get signatures on that license.
Once you have these "signatures" you can then enter different class races etc.
Thats my basic knowledge of it as a friend of mine on hear works for a racing team in the MINI Challenge and thats what he explained to me!
Ohh and WSelcome to MINI2.

For those in the USA, as I'm not sure what happens elswhere, I would highly recomend joining the BMWCCA and start doing HPDEs (High performance Drives Ed). Tons of fun, and I believe the right way to go if you really want to end up racing. Do yourself a favor, and to all those that you may race, and do as many HPDEs as you can and then do a race school, aslo BMWCCA.

In england you need to take an ARDS test, which if passed you get given a competition license to race!

For road racing in the USA I recommend the Sports Car Club of America. Check SCCA Sports Car Club of America (http://www.scca.org).
