When I was seriously into sprinting with my escort in the 80,s 90,s Ian used to run the BARC sprint championship.When he wasn,t busy sorting us lot out he would recall how he spent a whole summer racing around europe towing his mini from one event to the next living off start money and in a tent!
Only came back once to rebuild the engine.Sadly died a few years ago if my memory is correct.

Hope those changes work. Not easy to upgrade a car from that era. Still a great car either way. Looks nice in blue, hope the engine sounds good too

An Autocross event in Wales from 1969 in link below, quite a few Mk1 Minis in it.

Rhyl Motor Club
Slip sliding away: motor sport time trials for Minis in particular at Towyn, between Abergele and Rhyl:-
https://player.bfi.org.uk/free/film/...ub-1969-online

"Rhyl & District Motor Club was founded in 1946 and a car of that era is parked with loudspeakers attached to its roof as a new generation of cars slip and slither around a time-trials course at Towyn, between Abergele and Rhyl, on land in front of Ysgol Maes Owen (primary school in Morfa Avenue, Foryd, Rhyl). Nippy little Minis predominate, a black one sponsored by 'Star St Garage Merlyn Pyer – Cardiff'. A red and orange one, from 'Crompton Transport St Fagans', comes a cropper.
This footage was shot by Joseph Cone, of Pentre, Queensferry, Flintshire, a member of Deeside Cine Club (HQ: Rivertown Schoolroom, Shotton) and a provider of film shows locally. He was proprietor of a General Merchant's business, selling hardware, oil and electrical goods and photographic film which he developed and printed."

Bills Minis are always on the absolute limit of what's possible with a Mini - always looking for that extra tenth. It'll sound amazing - that thing will easily rev past 10K (when Bills Metro spaceframe had the BDH in it the rev counter telltale was showing 11K - and Bill claimed he was "taking it easy").
