8 EMO was used on the 66 Express and Star rally driven by Alan Cooke and Mike Wood. It was also hillclimbed. A few weeks back I was talking to a chap who went with his brother in 1966 to buy it just up the road from where I now live. He describes it as being a 'pretty fresh' car out of Abingdon. He couldn't afford it with the 1293 engine it had fitted and did a deal with it fitted with 998 Cooper eng/box.

I have transfered all the Works Car info from Grahams Site to our site.

I have credited all posters & left graham's original introduction to the pages untouched. I hope that people understand this is an attempt to save vital info, not a power grab on my behalf.
