where there's a will, there's a way

I'm writing this in a month when three major Mini events were postponed to next year, Mini Action Day, L2B and Stanford Hall, so I was starting to feel a bit fed up as I'm missing my Mini friends and the wondrous sight of many Minis gathered together. My keep calm and carry on attitude at the start of the summer was beginning to fade so I had a stern word with myself as I know that the Mini scene will carry on and it will adapt if necessary. Where there's a will, there is a way! A perfect example of this can be found in the feature on the Cooper S on pages 30-37. It's an impressive story of a young man called Stanley Eakins who wanted to go…

mini scene

Mini racing at Thruxton Historic Mini events able to go ahead have been few and far between but some motorsport has taken place and Minis were racing at Thruxton Historic over the weekend of 15-16 August. Spectator tickets were limited and the grandstand and paddocks were closed to visitors. The HRDC Thermex Allstars for pre-66 Sports, GT and Touring Cars was cut short because of a red flag. Of the Minis racing, John Yea qualified in 16th and Richard Colburn qualified in 10th place. John had a slow first lap and, after his fifth lap he was second to last but he soon got his rhythm towards the end of the race. Richard had a good start but lost a number of places and, after lap seven, he was last but started…

mini matrimony

Matthew and Hannah Dille had a ‘lockdown wedding’ on 8 August 2020 at Holy Trinity Church in the centre of Coventry. Matthew arrived, with his brother, in his 1998 MPi Mini Cooper. “I purchased it last December and have been restoring it ever since,” explained Matthew. “Hannah arrived with her dad in our neighbour’s red Mini." Matthew has always liked Minis. "My interest stemmed from Mr Bean and then The Italian Job and it was my ambition from the age of 12 to own one. My Mini had failed its MOT in 2011 and had not been on the road since. The previous owner did a reasonable amount of bodywork but didn't get round to completing the restoration. I have refreshed most of the suspension and fitted a new Stage 1…
