|More track day action. Top: Jean-Pierre Cochet-Terrasson (left) tests Patrick Nicolas’s Mini Jem after it
is reborn. Patrick writes: “For the trackdays, I use 13" wheels because the Avon slick tyres are more available than the old 10" Dunlop.
They give a more modern look but that is not the goal. I'm still working on the car to solve some minor problems. This winter [2009-10], I've changed
the pistons (the engine was smoky), added an air duct on the radiator, added a vintage shiftlight on the dashboard, change the tune of the suspension
(more negative camber).... ”
