Round 1 of the Victorian hillclimb championship and got the Mini Marcos out for a run. 05:30 start to drive the car 1.1/4 hours to Rob Roy and the car generated heaps of interest with the officials and spectators and fellow drivers and a good day was had. completed three consecutively quicker runs the last two with badly bogged starts so should have been 2 seconds quicker realistically in run 4 but never got there as the heavens opened in biblical proportions and we bailed to try to drive home. The car copped a beating driving home in a torrential downpour and freak hail storm but not too much damage and nothing that stopped us making it home eventually so plan is to venture out for round 2 in February.

Hurrah.....after the rest of the 2020 season was cancelled it looks like the 2021 season is planning to kick off in January - Covid dependent of course - so we might be able to give the MM another run.

Fingers crossed for you Phil.  Car looks super shiny in these photos too.
Can I ask - what have you done to the bonnet?  It looks something like what Ferrari have done (S duct?) to extract heat from the radiator.
