Find any information about my race car

Post by coopermk2 »

Hello,

I am Lenny from France. I just bought an austin mini cooper 1969.
The mini raced in the United States and Canada according to its stickers (see attached photos).
I'm looking for any period information about it, old photos, old owner's name..??!!
I thank in advance all those who can help me to retrace a little its history ;)
I need your help ! :?

Hello & Welcome, Lenny. I can't help with the history (nice looking Mini though) but I wonder if the car came with a log book? Most race cars in the US & Canada will have a log book to record the races it has entered and it also allows the tech inspectors to make any notes about the car. There may not be an address but it should list the owner's name.

Hello Eric, thank you for your welcome.
I have no document or information about the mini.
The log book is what I'm looking for precisely to obtain information on its history.
I hope that someone can bring me vintage photos on the circuit or any other information :)
