Description

This FIA Mini was purchased at our Autosport Show auction in 2019 and immediately sent to established historic motorsport preparers, Jordan Racing Team (JRT).

It was then stripped to a bare shell to begin its bare metal rebuild. Once stripped and blasted the car was checked on an Owens Fabrications chassis jig and then repainted by Normandales in the customers choice of exterior colour with the usual JRT choice of chassis grey inside and underneath. All running gear was either replaced with new parts or fully refurbished and the engine was replaced with the latest-specification FIA unit from SH Engineering. JRT fitted a new Racetech seat complete with back mount, Schroth quick-adjust seat belts, Safecraft FIA-spec window and centre nets, latest-spec Quantum dampers, Owens Fabrication rear anti-roll bar and a Swiftune fuel tank.

After being rebuilt with the usual JRT quality and attention to detail, the Mini has been raced four times by Andrew and Mike Jordan but due to their growing work commitments they simply won’t have the time to use it as much as they would wish to, so it’s now ready for its next lucky owner. The FIA HTP papers are valid until 2030 and the car has been re-prepped and set up since the last race. Quite simply, to prepare to Mini to this standard would now cost a lot more than this estimate, and with the reassurance of being prepared by one of the best in the business, this looks to be an ideal entry into the fabulous world of historic Mini competition.
