Performance MINI July-August 2019

There's been more magazine coverage for Y registration MINIs this month. One of the original Performance MINIs along with MINI Y Register member and regular at the shows, Mark Green, has a writeup on his MINI Cooper Works conversion in the July-August 2019 Issue.

G8 UFC is Cooper Works conversion #9. Making it a very early example of these, the last of the naturally aspirated John Cooper Works conversions. Whilst I have been unable to confirm it, I believe due to the colour and date of registration of this car there is a high probability that with its original registration number of GV51 EWD this car is the car featured in the John Cooper Garages brochure produced to advertise these cars back in 2001.
