We consider the minimum time optimal control problem for systems of the form

$ y'(t)=f(y(t),u(t))\,\quad y(t) \in \mathbb{R}^n,\ u(t)\in U \subset \mathbb{R}^d. $

We assume $f(x,U)$ to be a convex set with $C^1$ boundary for all $x\in\mathbb{R}^n$ and the target $\kappa$ to satisfy an interior sphere condition. For such problems we prove necessary and sufficient optimality conditions using the properties of the minimum time function $T(x)$. Moreover, we give a local description of the singular set of $T$.
