Mildred is the rally Mini made famous on the UK's international rally stages,
immortalised in 2005 by Corgi.

Constructed to "Group A" regulations (the most powerful specification of Mini allowed by FIA regulations), Mildred successfully completed many rallies during 2000 winning her class in the Safety Devices National Rally Championship driven by Neil and navigated by Anna McColl.

Although Mildred is constructed to Group A specification, some modifications have been carried out to push the specification past this. Group A requires this Mini to run on the standard fuel injector, and a cylinder head with standard sized valves. During 2000, Mildred was running on twin 1"3/4 SU carburetors, and a large valve cylinder head to generate considerably more power than GpA.

Mildred has been returned to GpA specification in order to compete at international and World Rally Championship level.

Current specification includes:
Multi-point Safety Devices roll cage
Fully rose jointed suspension
Ohlins Shock Absorbers

AP racing vented brakes with 4 pot calipers (Ex Timo Makinen, 1994 Monte Carlo Rally)
4 speed Jack Knight Dog 'box
Salisbury LSD
Jack Knight Timken drop gears
1293cc block
High output alternator
Hardy Spicer joints
Omex fuel injection system
Rolling road tuned
FSE Fuel pump and filter
Goodridge fittings and Aeroquipe hose used throughout
Mini Spares ultra light flywheel to CBM spec
Group A Kent Cam
