World Record Broken
On Saturday the 7th September, at the FIA European Finals at Santa Pod Raceway, England, Thomas Barnes piloted the 1320MINI.com BMW MINI to a new world record. Thomas drove the MINI hard – the result: a new world ET record for a BMW MINI of 10.379 @ 136.58 in a ¼ of a mile and if that wasn’t enough a few hours later a new world MPH record for a BMW MINI in ¼ of a mile of 139.83.
1320 is one of the UK's leading BMW MINI specialists. A small, family run business, 1320 is based on the borders of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire and offers cost effective servicing, repairs and performance tuning of all models of BMW MINI, including One, Cooper and Cooper S.
1320 has been recycling, repairing, servicing, tuning and racing BMW MINI's since 2005, so we have an abundance of experience looking after these vehicles. Virtually all aspects of your MINI needs can be catered for, from an oil change and health check, to a full service, engine rebuild or crash repair.
Having raced our own R53 MINI Cooper S for a number of years and having tuned a large number of our customers' vehicles, we have gained a wealth of knowledge about repairing and modifying these cars. We leverage this experience to the benefit of our customers, enabling us to offer MINI tuning solutions for all levels, from mild to wild.
Each car and each individual's needs are different and this depends upon what you want to achieve and what you would like to spend - all the staff at 1320 race on a very low budget and so we appreciate the need for prudence!
Depending on your requirements we will fit either new, recycled, original manufacturers parts or the best aftermarket parts available, we also fit parts that you supply.
1320's sophisticated in-house 4 wheel drive rolling road is used to accurately measure the performance of a customer's car before and after our tuning work, as well as being available for hire for third party use.
1320's website offers mail order part sales both to the UK and worldwide. We invite you to discover what we have to offer to help you maximise the enjoyment from your MINI!
As you can see there is still a bit to do to complete the website, but if you have any questions please give us a ring or email us and we will be pleased to answer your questions.
