MINI LIFE I’ve been around Minis since I raced one aged 13, I rebuilt a Mini as my first road car, and have owned many others along the way. I’ve since driven, written about and photographed some of the best cars on the scene. No longer using the long-term project car, in 2017 I decided to sell most of my possessions and go racing again.
MINI SPEC My Mini was once a Mini Miglia, built originally from a new Rover Motorsport shell in the early 2000s. Corgi produced a die-cast model of the car and it’s had a good deal of success over the years. It’s set to compete in the Mini Se7en S-Class, a limited-tuning starter series with an emphasis on DIY prep. My dad’s project is a Mini Clubman with a Vauxhall Astra VXR engine shoehorned up front.
