Minimag Tech Expert
Started out as 'a hand with the spanners' to my cousin Peter who'd just started racing in Mini Miglias. Spent fortunes at Mini Spares Centre building a couple of Miglias before joining the company for 5 years. During my 'Mini Life' I've had everything on the road from bog standard 850s to Monstrous 1600s and every conceivable variation you can imagine in between.
