hey guys hope your all well? (cooper S 2005)

i hope someone could shine some light on this odd sound i'm getting?

It only happens after starting up and pulling away when the revs hit just over 2,000 rpm its like a loud tick sound?
What i was thinking is, Is there some kind of flap that opens on start up to stop the damp getting in while the car is standing? As it only does it on start up and the revs go over 2,000 rpm. Its definitely come the front end of the car and sounds like a loud tick sound and only last for a sec?

Just had another go seeing what makes the sound and i found out it is not rev
based its speed based. when u hit 15mph or so it makes a click/ticking sound it only lasts for a sec or so?

Just spoke to Cooper norwich he guy there said "he has taken a 3 cooper S's out and they all make the same sound"
Very confused now lol

Thanks in advance
