The 1960s were a great period in British Rallying/Racing and this set centres on the 1969 Tour de France Automobile with three Classic Mini Cooper S Mk.II models, all decorated in red with white roof and sporting the colourful sponsorship companies of the day. The names of the drivers, all racing legends from that sporting era, are printed on the sides of each car alongside the Union Flag.
Car No. 12, registered URX 550G, is as driven by Brian Culcheth and team-mate Johnstone Syer. Car No. 56,URX 560G was the drive of John Handley and Paul Easter; and Car No. 57, registered OBL 45L had Paddy Hopkirk and Tony Nash thrashing it out.
Although the race was won that year by the French, with a Porsche 911R, the British Minis proved they were a match for anything and this set is a great souvenir of that great motorsport period.
