In Mini Magazine July 14 Issue 226:
Star names and cool Minis have gone hand-in-hand since the 1960s, and they're still very much at it! In the July 2014 issue of Mini Magazine we catch up with AC/DC star Brain Johnson as he pilots his Cooper S racer around Goodwood, and meet some of the biggest names from the Mini's heyday at the inaugural MkI performance Mini Action Day.
And as well as top stars, we've got top cars too. Carl Jones' incredible KAD 16-valve hillclimber is about as perfect as a competition Mini can be, while James Conner's neat Paddy Hopkirk-themed saloon is a regular trophy winner at shows. For those who prefer their Minis a little more classic we've got a period-tweaked Austin Se7en and a Mk3 Riley Elf, while slab-front fans will love Carl and Becky Lewis' pair of unique custom 1275 GTs.
On the tech front, our resident guru Keith Claver assesses the best engine breather options, we look at how to boost 998cc engine power by 29 per cent and show you how to fit solid rear subframe mounts.
All this plus reports form Himley Hall and the Brands Hatch Mini Festival, the latest scene and motorsport news, updates on our projects, readers' builds and the best photography you'll find in any Mini magazine.
