What a year 2016 is shaping up to be, and we haven't even had the first race yet! Make sure to join us on 28th March at Castle Combe for our Easter Monday meet and first rounds of the championship.

We thought it a good chance to catch up on the latest builds and rebuilds going on within the club. Of course most racers will be doing some fettling, but in alphabetical order, here are some of the major builds that we know about so far:


^ Charlie Budd and his Pristine Condition team are building a fresh Mini Se7en to challenge for podiums - maybe even a win...?


^ Meanwhile, James at Rightline gets busy on Duncan Emmett's new Mini Se7en. This pic is from July 2015 - it's looking a bit more complete now!


^ Owens Fabrication's latest Miglia was debuted at the Mini Fair on 31st January, and it's a beaut.


^ Gareth Hunt's bright orange Mini Se7en, which has undergone an extensive rebuild at home. A-Series Spares helped with the media blasting and paint after the body was squared back up again on Paul Brown's jig. 

^ We mustn't forget Harrison Kirby's '68 Cooper S barnfind, which he'll soon be returning to the Mini Se7en grid. 


^ Josh Collins' Mini Se7en S-Class was once a Miglia. It'll be getting a fresh leash of life this season in our popular entry-level series.


^ Justin Cooper's Snetterton Speedshop Se7en S-Class will be joining him too. Tidy!


^ From SMG Motorsport comes Leon Window's brilliantly retro Se7en, which also debuted at the Mini Fair.


^ Ralph Budd's making good progress with Mini Se7en S Class build, and with any luck we'll upload part three of his diary very soon.


^ Rob Stevenson from series supporter A-Series Spares will also be joining us on the Mini Se7en grid with this totally transformed racer. It'll feature a host of new products to test.


^ Sam Summerhayes is back for another season with the fast-paced Miglias, now with an all-new car. It's almost too good looking to race!


^ It'll be Simon Martin's first season on track, using this fully updated racer from the '90s. The graphics need to stay!


^ And finally, it's Tom Sanderson fresh Mini Se7en. Tom has traded in his MG Metro Cup racer and built this stunning Mini at Sanderson Speed Shop.
