Ready to race. Finally our Mini Cooper S historic race car is about to turn a wheel in anger here at the Brands Hatch Mini Festival. We’ve built this car to illustrate a book on building a historic racing Mini. The book is to be published by Crowood press. Thanks to Chris Harper and Minisport for sponsoring the project along with all the other suppliers who helped make it happen and to Bill Sollis for testing the car and helping to dial it in. Pedalling the tiny tin top this weekend will be our own leader Shaun Rainford.
We had a great time this weekend at the Brands Hatch Mini Festival. We brought down a couple of cars for display and even got to demonstrate them on the parade lap. John Rhodes Mini, GPH1C and our limousine were all very popular. The highlight was a lot of fantastic racing, especially from the FIA pre-66 cars with a cracking drive from AC/DC’s Brian Johnson. It was great to see lots of old friends and make some new ones. Lets hope this concept continues to grow and hopefully we will see you next year.
