Austro Classic, March 1994

Wolfgang Buchta does a night rally in Mini Marcos 8050.

Top Gear, May 1994

“Sweet & Low” - Mini Sprint and Mini Marcos.

“Top Gear” is to journalism what Jeffrey Archer is to literature. If you watch the programme you'll know what to expect, but unless you enjoy watching rubber being burned up mindlessly whilst going nowhere in particular you probably won't. Come back Tony Mason, all is forgiven!

This article is a shocker. The hack concerned, Nik Berg, obviously doesn't like the Mini Marcos, and makes his feelings plain. In that case why bother to write about it? Save your vitriol for the likes of Ford and Vauxhall! Actually, from a programme that selects as its "Car of the Year" in 1999 one that is absolutely hideous when viewed from any angle inside or out, and then picks and even greater visual disaster in 2000, it comes as no surprise.

Berg completely misses the point about the Mini Marcos, reviewing it as a £14,500 production car not a cheap and cheerful £3,000 kit car. The higher price is what Marcos charged the Japanese for a fully built car with brand new Mini components and air conditioning. He also missed the interesting connection between the Mini Sprint and the Mini Marcos - Rob Walker - and he can't spell Corsley anyway.
