Mike Crow should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Mini Festival

Not sure if this qualifies as proper historic racing since they are still current series but there is a fine collection of Minis at Brands on Sunday. Especially the Miglias.. Racing last year was fabulous

I remember Harvey from the old ICS days. What is the V8 in his current Mini? I notice he won the 'Fastest Mini in the World' races.

Wasn't the the engine in Harvey Death's Mini a Radical built RPE V8 as fitted to their SR8 sports racing cars ?

Yes it is the 2600cc two Suzuki Hayabusa based bike engines on a common crankcase. I remember Martin Short's Rollcentre firm built it several years ago. It took a fair bit of testing and "tweaking" before it was "drivable" as it had massive torque steer at first. I was there yesterday and was amazed at all the other trick Minis that were there with different makes of engines.
Harvey won every race

The powertec v8 sounded fabulous spitting flames as he backed off going downhill into Graham Hill corner, some top class engineering in some of these flying pocket rockets, some of them are reviewed here https://www.autosport.com/national/n...nner/10322413/
