    As reported in the June MCR magazine – CooperWorld, BMW also recently added the Works Rally Replica 363 GYP to their growing historic classic Mini collection (which already includes the ex-works Mini JBL 493D) as built by Richard Skidmore and featured on the cover of Miniworld in January. Rauno Aaltonen is booked to drive the car on various future historic rallies. Apparently there were no takers for 363 GYP when first offered for sale, so it then went to auction at H&H but failed to reach its reserve…..which is when BMW stepped in and bought the car for their classic Mini collection.
