Originally a 2004 Mini Cooper S and then taken to John Cooper Works in West Sussex in 2006, by the then owner, for their 210 Up-Grade Kit to be fitted:-
JCW Sports Brake Kit
JCW Sports Suspension Kit
JCW Air Intake Assembly
JCW R105 18’’ Alloy Wheel Set
JCW Strut Brace.
Eventually in April 2016 the car ended up with the owner before me who started to develop the car for fast road use and track day fun. This he did by employing 1320 Mini to carry out the following modifications:-
Airtec Intercooler and Boots
KAVS 17% Steel Reduced Supercharger Pulley and Belt
Janspeed Manifold with Victor Reinz Gasket
Bosch 550cc Injectors with EV6 Adaptors
ITG JCW Air Filter
NGK BCR8ES Plugs
Re-Map to 212 BHP
I bought the car in October 2016 when the previous owner got a Focus RS as a Company Car.
Over the winter I decided to fully modify the car to a very high specification with the intention of racing it in various saloon car championships, so set about stripping the interior and lightening the car in any way that I could including removing sound deadening pads. However, I left the air con in just in case!
I then drew up a specification to satisfy various regulations and in April 2017 entrusted Mark Fish Motorsport to carry out the extensive works:-
Safety Devices 6 Point Roll Cage to MSA Specification
Re-Locate and fit Odyssey Light Weight Battery and Mounting- Cage with extensive mods to main battery cables.
Cartek Battery Isolator Full Kit with internal and external cut off buttons.
Lifeline Fire Marshall Zero 360 2.25KG Kit FIA approved with 6 Jets, 2 in cab and 4 under the bonnet. Internal and external pull cables. Superior Extinguisher Kit.
Cobra Suzuka Pro-Fit GT Width GRP Race Seat FIA approved.
Cobra Light Weight Alloy Side Mounts 5mm.
TRS Magnum Ultralite 6 Point Saloon Hans Harness with quick fit Alloy Adjusters. Stress plates welded to car.
Ferrodo DS2500 Motorsport Brake Pads.
The car went like stink and stopped as you would want it to, so I booked it into a series of Sprint Races to begin with and which I have carried out all year, plus a track day to finish the season. During this time I took it to Sussex Road and Race to iron out a couple of issues and change the brake fluid and oil to keep it fresh. Whilst there I was tempted into having a cylinder head off a JCW engine with new head bolts and a Quaife Differential and new bearings fitted. It now pulls out of corners as it should and pulls, and pulls!! Also, and to keep it street legal, they fitted a Sports Cat as I had been running a De-Cat all year to increase the power.
All the modifications and improvements have been carried out by some of the best people in the business and where possible decisions to use superior components were taken with respect to the equipment used such as the extinguisher system and electrical isolator.
The car is running on a nearly new set of Pirelli P Zero run flat tyres and has an MOT that runs to 5th May2018. The number plate will stay with the car when it sells. The paintwork has a few blemishes but NO, repeat NO damage through racing or road use. HPI clear.
I have now decided to race an R56 turbo car so M11 WRK needs to move on to the next owner whom I know will get great enjoyment from a superbly prepared car.
