2004 Mini Cooper S Track/Hillclimb Car

Description

The notion that the Mini might have a future as anything other than basic transport was an anathema, the idea of a high-performance version was laughable. One man though, saw it quite differently. Racing car manufacturer John Cooper already knew quite a bit about tuning BMC’s A-Series engine, he was running the company’s Formula Junior effort at the time and a test drive in a prototype Mini convinced him of the car’s competition potential. The Mini Cooper soon established its credentials as a rally and race winner and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these, the 1071cc Mini Cooper ‘S’ of 1963, took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 971 ‘S’ and 1275 ‘S’ of 1964.
This highly modified 2004 Mini Cooper S has undergone extensive work to enable it to complete a lap of the Indy Circuit at Brands Hatch in under 60 seconds. This car needs to be seen to be appreciated as it has far too much information to list here. This extensively modified Mini is road legal yet suitable for both hill climb and circuit racing for the new owner.
