At that time he had an engineering and tool making business and his spare time was spent on modifying engines, mainly for motorcycles. He enjoyed owning various cars but favoured Jaguars. His wife did not take to driving and the Mini became little used. Having driven the Mini, Gordon got to like it and admire its driveability (of course he would!).

Gordon’s thoughts then turned to racing the Mini and so in 1961 a number of saloon car races were entered...."
