RACE-INSPIRED COLOUR SCHEMES
The whole race or rally replica thing looks great on a Mini, and with such an illustrious motorsport background, there’s plenty of styles to choose from. Over the years we’ve seen Works rally-inspired creations, Britax Coopers, Cooper Car Co replicas and even Gulf Racing livery! The subtle gold and black scheme on Richard Newton’s Cooper S is a bit more personal though, as it replicates the design found on the D.L. Wooding race Minis he managed in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. We love the idea of trawling through old photos to come up with an obscure retro design.
