This double DVD set traces the history of the Mini Cooper from its Mini 850 origins all the way to the present with a large focus on the Abingdon 'works' rally cars. Those who knew the cars best help to tell this story with such famous names as Paddy Hopkirk, Paul Easter, Stuart Turner and many more from the original BMC Abingdon team. Renowned motoring historian Graham Robson offers his insights as does Robert Young, chairman of the Mini Cooper Register and also Brian and Chris Harper of the biggest Mini specialists, Mini Sport of Padiham. Mike Cooper (Cooper Car Company Ltd.) and Ray Bates (Austin Rover Technical Manager) cover the engineering side of things and Nigel Thom once again provides expert narration as he has on previous TriumphDVD productions. Packed with never before seen archive film from 1960's rallies, recces and practice, plus a wealth of rarely and previously unseen images this release provides something for every Mini enthusiast anywhere in the world.
