RAC­ING RE­BUILD

Phil and Darren Ea­ton Mini Se7en Poole

Af­ter hill­climb­ing a 16-valve Mini for a few years, we de­cided to give cir­cuit rac­ing a go. The orig­i­nal shell was ac­quired by Phil in ex­change for a heater for a Mini – bar­gain! Af­ter a few new pan­els, it was treated to a full rollcage by Owens Fabri­ca­tion.

With the help of some friends we have com­pleted a dry build, in­stalling a fi­bre­glass front and boot floor, hy­draulic pedal box, fuel and brake lines plus some other good­ies. Now it is back with its new paint scheme, we have pur­chased the wheels and are on to the en­gine re­build. We aim to be out rac­ing in the 2017 Mini Se7en Cham­pi­onship.

The shell was ac­quired in a swap for a heater unit!
