The ‘Mini’ as we know it today was introduced in 1959 and marketed by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) as either an Austin Seven or a Morris Mini-Minor. The model names were soon simplified to become just the Austin or Morris Mini and both cars were identical apart from the badges and radiator grille. The cars design of transverse engine, front wheel drive and suspension layout, to give maximum interior space, also resulted in exceptional handling for a small car. This fact didn’t go unnoticed by John Cooper, owner of Cooper Cars and designer and builder of Formula One and rally cars. Seeing the potential for competition he persuaded BMC to build a performance version and so in 1961 the Austin and Morris ‘Mini Coopers’ were born. The car used an increased capacity 997cc race tuned engine with close ratio gearbox and front disc brakes and immediately became a success with the racing and rallying fraternity. An even more powerful version, initially termed the ‘S-Type’, was introduced in April 1963 using a further developed 1071cc engine and larger servo assisted disc brakes. The Mini Cooper S became immediately popular with celebrities and rally drivers alike and has more recently become a firm favourite in historic racing, particularly genuine early MKI Cooper S cars.
This Mini Cooper S is a familiar competitor at Goodwood, has current FIA papers, is fully race prepared by specialists Rae Davis Racing and is ready to go!
