With George set to compete in the MDA’s annual Belgium and Holland events in July, a classic Mini had to be sourced for him to race in the two events. It feel upon the two brothers father and team owner Jonothan to resurrect one of the teams old race cars hidden away in the families barn and in his own spare time he’s began to re-build the car ready for the event at the beginning of July.
The car of choice is Tom’s old 2010 race car, No. 432, and the first step was to replace the cars subframe which was damaged in crash. Make sure to keep track over the coming weeks as the car starts to take place, ready for its trip across to Europe in July!
