    Hi Steve,

    That is all the way from New Zealand, I recall seeing him doing this during more than one visit,the last I believein 1970. It was fun to watch and he was our icon as we all had Mini's/Elf's

    We know of at least one car that was used in this 'mini-spinning' but it is almond green/OEW, so not the one in this clip. Knowing NZ back then, it was more than likely a dealer's own car or a customer's as we didn't have spare cars for demonstrators.

    Regards

    Fantastic – The Master at work! he makes it look so easy doesn't he! I expect the car was a 'demonstrator':shock:which someone later bought thinking they'd got a low mileage 'bargain':D. Then wondered why the tyres and gearbox were worn out;).

    I remember wearing out the front tyres on my firstCooperin 1500miles…….
