Win a classic Mk.1 Mini!

Mk 1 Mini

Monday 18th November is the 107th anniversary of the birth of Sir Alec Issigonis, the designer of the iconic Mini. Sir Alec was born on November 18, 1906 and was the guiding light in the introduction of the Mini in 1959 when it was dubbed "the classless car". Nippy and manoeuvrable, the Mini became arguably the most popular car of all time.

BMW has chosen this auspicious date to coincide with the launch of the latest Mini line-up at its plant in Cowley Oxford – at a time when the car is as big a favourite as ever.

The RAC is offering you the chance to win an iconic 1965 Mini, with 12 months' RAC Breakdown cover and up to £500 contribution towards RAC Classic Car Insurance^ (subject to terms and conditions).

The Morris Mini 850 received a Cooper S-style makeover for the RAC’s stand at Goodwood Revival (13 – 15 September 2013) from Johnathan Lewis, multiple British Champion in Minis, and his team at the Snetterton Speed Shop . This is a fantastic opportunity to own a classic British Mini – an endearing investment which has the potential to grow in value for years to come.

The prize draw has now closed.  We will be announcing the winner shortly.
