It was taken up developed further and sold to the public. I remember off the back of his fee, he bought & built a MINI marcos kitcar with a tuned MINIsprint (now MED) 1380 A series engine.

weighed nowt and went like stink (well we thought so at the time)...I seem to remember his first road test was not 100% successful as he had forgotten to put in any brake fluid. Good job the handbrake on the rear shoes was connected

wonder what he is doing now? either multi-minted or sweeping the streets
