Anatomy of the Works Minis #2# Rally, Racing & Rallycross Cars

by Brian Moylan

Particularly famous for their great adventures in the Monte Carlo Rally, works Minis humbled many bigger and more powerful cars in international motorsport during the 1960s and 1970s. Mechanic Brian Moylan spent 22 years in the workshops of the BMC Competitions Department where the works cars were built. Here, all the secrets of how ordinary production line Mini-Coopers were converted into the mighty giant-killing Minis of motorsport are revealed in great detail.

This book includes contributions on the racing Mini from Ginger Devlin and the rallycross Mini from "Jumping Jeff" Williamson.
