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.
