Mini 50th Anniversary Track Days

Gurston Down Speed Hillclimb Course, 6th-7th June 2009

Notes:
1-7. Chris Lawrence in the twin engined Deep Sanderson 105.
8. “This car is one of only 17 Monica 560s ever produced. Designed in the early seventies this car was to challenge luxury car manufacturers such as Facel Vega and Jensen. This rare example is owned by the car’s original project manager, Chris Lawrence and his wife Carrie.
“The 560 made its debut at the 1972 Paris and Earls Court motor shows with a price tag of only £20,950. Powered by a 6 litre Chrysler V8, the 560 was capable of reaching speeds in excess of 160mph. Boasing luxuries such as full leather interior and air conditioning this was truly a grand tourer to challenge the best of its day.” Chinook
