Potential Group U Mini
Iwas interested to read your Historic Sports Sedan article ‘U-Turn Ahead’ in issue #89 as I have the Ron Foley hillclimb Mini from 1976. I purchased it three years ago with its full history and log books.
This Mini fits right into the Group U category as it won lots of races.
All the best Sports Sedan Minis from NSW and VIC competed in an event at Morwell hillclimb and this Mini was two to three seconds faster.
In 1982 it was the second fastest car on the day at Morwell only to be beaten by an open-wheeler. The Mini did a 36.2, only 0.4 seconds off Peter Brock’s track record of 35.8 in his A9X hatchback. Glen Joyce Email
