Ian Gray’s Supercharged Mini Pickup wins ‘Best Car’ at Mk1 Action Day at Blyton

Last year we built a small bore A series engine with aluminium Speedwell cylinder head, Shorrock super charger and Colotti 5 speed box for Ian Gray’s Mk1 Mini Pickup. Last week Ian drove the car all the way to Blyton Park for the Mk1 Action Day.

“Drove the old girl up to Blyton on Saturday, did a few laps of the track on Sunday then drove her back home, never missed a beat. We won the ‘best car of the show’ award as well :-)” – Ian Gray

Classic Mini engine building service

The BMC ‘A’ Series engine is one of our specialties, having built and raced Sprites, Midgets and Minis for years. Road, rally and full race engines, we can build to your required specifications. We currently have two Mini engines in the assembly shop. One will be a ‘A+’ road engine, the other a fast road small block showcasing all that the 60’s tuning companies had to offer. This little 998 has been bored out to 1040cc and will receive a genuine Speedwell Alloy head and Shorrock supercharger. This will all sit on top of a magnesium cased Colotti 5 speed gearbox. Should be a lot of fun.
