Historic Motor Racing has continued to grow over the last decade, in the face of challenging economic times. Competitor numbers increase, more and more cars are restored and returned to use, and the number of world class events keeps on rising.

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!

Playmini Historic Motorsport offers a range of services to serious competitors. We currently have two Cooper S race cars in build. The process, from rusty 50 year old donor car, to race ready machine takes approximately 12 months. Customers wishing to commission a complete car should pick up the phone in the first instance. Our processes and techniques are proven by our success on the race track. We pride ourselves in products ready to win.

If you are looking for components or sub-assemblies, these too can be supplied. We import/export worldwide.

For competitors with existing cars we can help unlock the full potential. Clearly there are many facets to winning performance, we cover them all. Selection of the right components, build process, tuning and set up are commonly discussed in pursuit of winning performance.

ok, just to clarify as there seems to be some confusion - Playmini is NOT closing down, we are just not going to make our range of exhausts anymore ... the exhausts are a very small part of our business, but times change and customers needs change - the exhausts have slowed right down so we are stopping production of them so we can put that energy into other parts of the business ...

It’s the end of an era ... Our Playmini Maximiser exhausts are coming to an end. After a phenomenal 30 years of selling these bad boys its sadly time to draw it to a close.
We have a few of our large-bore and small-bore side exit rear silencers left in stock, available as a set ( silencer and link pipe to either an LCB or CAT ) Due to the length the carriage is stupidly high so collection only from our Faygate warehouse .... once these are gone, that’s it, no more 🙁

Large bore side exit available with either LCB or Cat back link pipe, small bore is available with LCB or cat back link pipe and also we have some longer cat pipes that remove the cat on the small bore ... no van/pickup silencers are left, sorry #playmini1959 #mini #playmini #minicooper #classicmini #austinmini #exhaust
