When Bryan Moy­lan had the idea of writ­ing an ar­ti­cle based on his mem­o­ries of 22 years spent as me­chanic in the work­shops of the BMC Com­pe­ti­tions depart­ment where the works cars were built, he was told that there was suf­fi­cient ma­te­rial to fill a book.

The re­sult­ing slim vol­ume pro­vides plenty of in­sider in­for­ma­tion about how the mighty Mi­nis achieved their gi­antkiller sta­tus. ‘Jump­ing Jeff’ Wil­liamson adds fur­ther at­mos­phere and de­tail on the Ral­ly­cross Mini and Gin­ger Devlin does the same for the works rac­ing cars. This is sup­ported by some in­for­ma­tive pho­to­graphs and a rally car build sheet.

First pub­lished in 2001, the re­vised and reprinted book pro­vides in­spi­ra­tion for a new gen­er­a­tion of Mini rac­ers. David Brown
