We have teamed up with leading classic mini specialist MiniSport and acclaimed motoring author and journalist Jeremy Walton to write a book on the build and preparation of an FIA App. K Mini Cooper S racing car. We will be restoring an old Mk1 shell that we have had here for many years now and from it will build an FIA Appendix K racer. Jeremy Walton will be documenting the whole process with pen and paper and the book will be published by Crowood Press. MiniSport have kindly agreed to support the project and will be recognized a partner in the build of this car. The panel work for the restoration has come from M-Machine. This little mini looks very sad indeed but will come through the other end in “as new” condition.
