Fresh from paint before Christmas, 199 XVB  has been moved to the satellite RS Fabrications Special Projects workshop, Silverstone.

Sean Dodd, Ex David Brown Automotive/Prodrive Technician etc, has been helping, sorting parts and moving the project forward.

1380 Engine install, with front & rear subframes attached, the process begins on the assembly of the Neville Trickett Mini Sprint.


Attention to detail being the key factor on this build, note the concave Cibie 7 inch headlights, circa 1970-80, found by Russell on a recent trip to France,. Gold Dust!!

“Things from the past are etched on your mind, and I remember seeing these particular headlights [in period on a Mini], at an Alexandra Palace Car Show” Russell commented. “I had to have these on our Sprint as you can see!, £’s don’t ask!!” he continued.

What a transformation from the original Classic Mini MK1 purchased 2 years ago!!

As you can see below. its been a long road, determination, man hours, it happening!!

Updates on the Trickett Mini Sprint No. 29 Build to follow……………
