Players Mini

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis



OK, here's a Mini I'd like to know more about. The spec certainly looks incredible - some sort of shiny engine in the back (presumably a bike motor, judging by the dimensions?), paddle-shift, a wide-track with the necessary broadened arches covering a set of awesome Compomotive Turbo split-rims, a cunning front-mounted cooling system. And on the inside, that flocked dash houses an LCD screen and modern switchgear, there's copious carbon-fibre, RenaultSport Recaros, and a very serious rollcage. There's a lot to enjoy here.
So... who owns it? What's the story? What's the engine? There is much to learn. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, let's just bask in its magnificence for a while.

Spotted at the 2015 Players Classic - more photos here.
