February issue out now
Suffering from the post festive blues? February’s issue of Mini Magazine includes plenty of great cars to brighten up your mood, and we mean that literally, with yellow, pink and bright green Minis all in the mix!
This month’s selection of feature Minis is all about doing things a little differently. Our cover star is a prime example – Mark Brown has built a stunning Mini Sprint with a host of traditional features including a 1071 S motor, but with a there’s a modern aluminium seven-port head and engine management too. Meanwhile, Roger Agate has taken inspiration from a French Mini racing series to give his Innocenti Cooper a unique look, and Noah Robinson has combined retro styling with the original ‘pink’ paint shade to make his 35LE stand out from a crowd.
But that’s not all, for David Thomas has rebuilt his MkI Traveller with inspiration from the Portuguese IMA Estates, and we’ve got a rather mental K-Series turbo project for you to enjoy too. We’ve also got the David and Goliath tale of Clive King’s exploits on Rally GB, and we meet Paul Hughes, the man behind many of the popular Mini parts available today.
As ever, our market-leading tech section is packed with useful information and advice. Keith Calver shares his wisdom on primary gear tolerances and answers your tech queries, and we also have a handy step-by-step guide to refurbishing your radius arms and fitting negative camber/toe brackets. All this plus show coverage from Hong Kong, the latest Mini scene news, motorsport updates, staff projects, readers’ Minis, cars for sale and much more – get it in the February issue, out now.
