The MacG Racing Mini Cooper JCW was originally built by John Cooper garages to demonstrate their capability to BMW. The car was specified and built to compete in the Dubai 24hr which it did very successfully in 2007. Since then it has been raced in club level motorsport in the UK, until we purchased it in 2016 and have run it successfully in various events since then.
