the use of John Cooper adapted cars doesn't get a mention from the Oz MINI Australia Team. Does this mean they are underplaying John Coopers Role, or that the "Challenge" cars will simply be standard Coopers.......Hmmm..... I doubt it too. and it's a bit naughty......but again, in this cynical, conspiracy ridden, dishonest world we now live in, I guess it's to be expected.
All the UK Challenge cars have the 15" 7-hole standard Cooper wheels, and they've just done a sponsorship deal with Dunlop so they'll be the tyres we have to use. The ones in the brochure were produced for the Australia race and well before the regs were firmed up.
