If you check out the MCR Facebook page there's a video clip just been posted claiming that this car is the original works Mini. Now I may well not be an expert on this subject but have always been interested and I ALWAYS understood that the current 977 ARX was a historic rally car built and registered by Peter Barker in the 90s as a REPLICA of the works Mini that wore the number plate 977 ARX in the early 60s???. A tribute car, right? Same as a few others, like DJB 93B? (how they ended up with the number plates is another conversation entirely!)

Now if I'm wrong can someone please shut me up and illustrate how I've got this wrong?? If I'm right, then why is that claim being made?? People who read stuff published by a (once) well respected car club are given to believe what they read or are told by them and even go on to repeat it in the press, show guides, etc, so it DOES matter!

It's great that owners use historic rally cars as this one is used but can we just have a few facts thrown in now and again??

I'm all ears, please enlighten me....
