You may remember Mike Garstang who has been into Mini Sport quite regularly with his Hill Climbing MkI Mini Cooper, most recently with a Camshaft timing problem. You may remember that he had fitted it himself and because of this it hadn’t been timed correctly and was 4 degrees out, but Mike came back in to Mini Sport and let us time it for him before he went away and built it up again.

Mike has just updated us with how the Mini is performing before the upcoming Hill Climb at Harewood. Having just come back from France he has just put the “S” timing end back together and went out for a short test drive towards Ingleton.

Our mechanics told Mike he would notice a difference after being timed correctly and Mike reported that he definitely make a difference. So much so that Mike can see a new personal best on the horizon.

There is just a little bit of tinkering left now before he enters the Harewood Hill Climb and we will of course keep you updated on how he does!
