One massive attraction is the simple spectacle of the history of world motorsport laid before you all in one place on the same day. The paddock permits close up inspection and the track facilitates combat in the finest tradition of endeavor with respect!

In many ways it’s a millionaire’s playground, but as usual the humble Mini bucks the trend. For whilst the Minis are certainly not cheap they are affordable and available. Parts and repairs present no serious difficulties. And of course, values continue to rise – show us a contemporary car to which this applies. In short an FIA Appendix Cooper S is an asset to be loved, admired and raced hard!

Sunday 7th August, brands Hatch indy circuit for the Pre-66 historic Mini race.Race 1 we qualified in 8th position, Nick Paddy had a good battle with Ian Curley swapping position and keeping Ian on his toes !Unfortunately Nick's persistent back injury proved too much for him to drive in race two,however we managed to wheel out our secret weapon, Nick Padmore ! Nick had to start at the back of the grid due to the driver change but in true Padmore style took the car to a very respectable third place, deciding not to push any further in a car he was borrowing as it was getting a little messy up front as the photo shows 🙂All in all a fantastic weekend, as usual the car was set up to perfection by Bill Sollis and the engine and gearbox from Swiftune didn't miss a beat pulling us along at 8500 rpm !youtu.be/WUMnMUYcPsE ...
