1965 Austin Mini Cooper S Vintage Racing @ Grattan Michigan
Greg Wold is driving his very fast Mini at the VSCDA races in Grattan. I wish I could take credit for this, but this was Greg's idea. As you can see the car is fast, but watch Greg's footwork and you will see why the car is very fast.
Vintage Racing Crash Roll cages are good
This is Mark with Zapata in second place of the last race at Roebling Road. Listen close and you can hear his rear axle snap. At that point he can't do anything but hold on. Mark is fine. This is a good reason to over build safety into any racecar.

The MINI - A Celebration Of A Classic British Icon
The mini is, quite simply, the most popular British car ever built, and even more importantly, has become a classic British Icon.
This programme is a true celebration of the mini in every conceivable form. With the help of a dedicated group of mini enthusiasts, step back in time and discover the secrets of this much loved little car's success. Hear the story of the mini's development dating back to Issigonis' groundbreaking design of the late 1950's, right up to BMW's brand new MINI of the 21st Century, whilst enjoying a rare opportunity to see a whole host of mini's, up close and personal.
They say that anybody who remembers the 1960's couldn't actually have been there, so for anyone in need of a reminder, this trip down memory lane to the mini's glory years will be a nostalgic treat not to be missed. From the drawing board of Issigonis to the legend that now is the thoroughly modern MINI, this is great British design at its brilliant best, timeless, treasured and an inspiration.
