In Mini Magazine Summer 14:
Summer is a great time to get out and enjoy your Mini, and you’ll find plenty of inspiration in the summer issue of Mini Magazine. This month is all about dream machines, and there can be no better example than our cover car. Built by staffer Stephen over the last five years, it’s a 1330 trackday weapon with a unique blend of classic style and modern technology, and is real proof that we practice what we preach!
You’ll also find a fantastic MkI racer built exactly as racing legend John Rhodes wanted, plus a rear-engineed hybrid Mini that takes attention to detail to new levels. And because Mini Magazine has more great feature cars than any other Mini title, we also bring you the story of the ex-Plant Brothers ‘Team Green’ rally Mini and Tim Stafford’s fantastic concours-winning Cooper 500.
Elsewhere Eddie Collins - former boss of coachbuilding firms Radford and Wood & Pickett - shares his memories, and you’ll also find reports from the London to Brighton Run, the National Mini Cooper Day and the Thistle Run.
Crave tech? We show how you can boost a Mini’s power output by a staggering 108 percent with just bolt on modifications, taking a 998cc Mini and turning it into a 1275 beater. Our resident tech guru Keith Calver is also on hand to answer your Mini tech questions and to share his wisdom on how to correctly lap-in those troublesome balljoints. And that’s not all, as we’ve got the latest Mini scene news, motorsport, staff projects and much more besides.
