Santa Pod, Northants...early Cooper 997?
I recognised this car as soon as I saw it . . . . years ago I bought a copy of a book called 'Monte Carlo The Mini Legend', in it theres a photo taken inside the old BMC Competitions Department at Abingdon with various Minis, MGs, Austin Healey, A40 etc, in one corner is a little white and black Mini Cooper bearing the reg no. 939 ACE which stood out amongst all the other red cars. Nice to see it still survives, being an early 997 Cooper.
