Officially the World's Fastest Mini!!!!
This has been a long time in the making, it was the first time we ran it on
the drag strip with the freshly built 7.2L. We ran a 10 dead on the motor
at first. We then squirted some gas down it and a 9.6 second quarter was
achieved. There is a bit of tweeking to do to maybe see 8seconds!! 600bhp,
only running 50% of the 150bhp of Nitrous ;o)
We have just got back from Shakespeare County Raceway and claimed the
official Worlds Quickest Mini Award 2008!!! Bring on 2009!
My Janspeed Mini Cooper-S
This is the highlights of my Janspeed Mini Cooper S car that was used in
the famous enthusiast video Janspeed DIY Mini, produced by my company. The
car was stripped down to the last nut and bolt. It was designed by their
race team along with the legendary David Vizard and then built by
Janspeed's race engine builders. Even the body was rebuilt from scratch!
The car also featured in a magazine article as one of the fastest ever road
Minis! It's a blindingly quick car and will easily embarrass many hot
hatches of today. See the details on its website.
