Simes to race re­built Cooper S

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

For­mer sin­gle-seater racer Barry Sime will join his fa­ther Jimmy to race a Mini Cooper S in his­toric events this sea­son, start­ing with the U2TC race at the Don­ing­ton His­toric Fes­ti­val.

Jimmy has owned the 1964 Mini since he raced it at Inglis­ton in the late 1960s and the Scot­tish team has now re­built it to his­toric spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

“It’s taken a while to get it fin­ished but the end re­sult is worth it,” said Barry. “It’s a car he has owned since he raced it at Inglis­ton and Croft back then, so it has a lot of per­sonal his­tory.”

A pro­gramme in U2TC and His­toric Tour­ing Car events is now planned.
