Po­ten­tial Group U Mini

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Mail -

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
