The Mini has proved itself time and time again as a racing car. From 1959, when it first hit the track, to today many drivers of larger and more powerful cars have been surprised at the handling of Sir Alec Issigonis’ masterpiece.

The author tells the full story of the Mini’s career on the track in this welcome addition to the Crowood range. He covers the works’ sponsored teams as well as the many individuals who have raced Minis over the years. He also covers the mini-based kit cars such as the Mini Marcos, Unipower, Cox GTM and Camber.

Today there are still racing series which continue to thrill the crowds forty years after it first took to the track, and these too are described in this entertaining volume.
