This weekend marks what would have been the 99th Birthday of John Cooper CBE. 

John became an auto racing legend thanks to his rear-engined chassis design that would go on to revolutionise the sport at the very highest level – with Formula One and Indy 500 cars quickly adopting his work.

Of course, his company would also turn their hands to being Mini specialists; breathing new life into the Mini brand of cars and helping to grow the popular Mini racing scene. In celebration of his birthday, we’re running a series of blogs for you to learn more about this incredible man:
