"The Mini 1275 GT we have here, holds a very special place in history. In 1978 with financial backing from British Leyland and Patrick Motors, the racing driver Richard Longman modified and prepared this car to enter it into the British Touring Car Championships. It was entered in all 12 races and won its class in 11 of those races and retired once. As a result Richard Longman took the honours and won the Championship in fine style in this very car. In the subsequent 1979 season Richard Longman took 10 class wins over the 12 races and won the championship once again in this very same car."
ESTIMATE £130,000-£160,000
