Mini Cooper/Mini Cooper S (Rally Giants) By Graham Robson

I am 90 percent through reading this book, and I am disappointed it is coming to an end! Very well detailed history of the Minis and their drivers, as well as technical information, with very interesting stories about their races, as well. It is possible that you'll come to know some of these individual cars very well. Read on Kindle app. Mini Cooper/Mini Cooper S (Rally Giants)


This is a comprehensive study of the career of one type of rally car the BMC Mini Cooper/Mini Cooper S. In the 1960s the Mini became famous as Britain's most successful rally car. It combined superb handling, a tiny body shell, high performance engines and the excellence of front wheel drive in an irresistible package. Not only this, but the works team included famous drivers like Paddy Hopkirk, Timo Makinen and Rauno Aaltonen.
The works Minis not only won the Monte Carlo three times 1964, 1965 and 1967 along with the European Rally Championship in 1965, but also won events all over the world. Because Minis were British, and well promoted, they became seen as giant killers, and were the people's favourite for many years. The car outpaced many of its rivals, and this book examines exactly who they were, and how they came to be defeated by the mighty Mini.'
Even today, works Minis appear at every gathering of classic cars and in 2009, Mini celebrates its 50th birthday. Packed with over 100 photographs, this book is a fitting and timely tribute to a much loved Rally Giant.
