That's a serious effort in a short period of time. Well done.

It would be nice to see some group shots of the cars that raced together year by year.

The car that caught my eye was the 63 Mini Bimotor Whitmore Targa Florio Spark S1501.

I never realised someone had made a twin engined Mini for competition. What a great idea (and a great subject for a model) :

This is a super thread full of tremendous models. A lovely theme

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

This thread continues to get better and better - not one model I wouldn't want to have.

The twin-engined Mini is Mad. Could make a "mini" sub-theme of twin-engined cars with the Alfa Bimotore from the 1930s.

By 'Boss' do you mean "'er indoors" or is there something going on at work we should know about?

I came across this picture of the 1955 Mille Miglia at Brescia and thought of this thread. Imagine making a diorama of this scene in 1:43 !
