I shall keep the history on this car brief as it has so much I could write about.
This car is a 2003 John Cooper Challenge Clubsport. Built by John Cooper Garages, Gary Kounnis raced this car for many subsequent seasons. Gary was podium winner on many occasions throughout his racing career in this car. After this, another driver raced the car in the MINI Challenge. In all, the car raced in the challenge for seven years.
Fitted is :
Unique JCW Clubsport plaque Full roll cage
Corbeau seat and harness Fire extinguisher
Electrical cut offs
JCM steering wheel.
Other race smaller parts are also fitted. I have many photos and videos of this car racing and its original early John Cooper Challenge car log books containing details about the race and scurtineering cards/stickers. Very few, maybe just into double figures, of the Clubsport cars survive. Racing days were not so kind. He’s extremely fortunate to acquire this rare car and very proud to be it’s custodian. Mark
