John Fitzpatrick • Seeing Anita Taylor’s Cooper S at Shelsley Walsh brough back some vivid Mini racing memories, not least a final corner close shave at Silverstone

MY FAVOURITE TOOL

The life story of a Tui BH2 • This ‘Baby McLaren’ lured a disillusioned racer back to the track, before deteriorating in a garden and re-emerging victorious as a unique historic competition...
