1320 & O'Dwyer Racing at Cadwell MLR test day- 05 May 2012
We got here at about 13.00 and signed on for a 2 hr test session from 15.00-17.00, weather was nice and dry so things were looking good.

Richard went out at 14.55 and someones engine / turbo let go in a big way in front of him so Red Flag everyone in and a 15 min delay, you've guessed it as they went out the rain started.........Richard managed a 1.53 in traffic and with a mediumn drizzle.

Here are some pics from today

Odwyer Racing @ Owen Developments- 30 April 2012
We managed to get over today to see Mark at Owens and make some runs on their rolling road with Richard O'Dwyer's turbo MINI. We wanted to do this whilst it has a stock cylinder head and stock camshaft. Mark believes we can still find some more power with this combo which shows what a great start this conversion can be HP to £ spent with a stock engine. 

We're glad to announce that we will be partenering with the team at Owens to build the best turbos & kits for the R53 & R56 1.6 MINIs.

To say we're excited about working with the team at Owen Developments is a huge understatement, so here are today's results.

Testing at Cadwell with O'Dwyer Racing- 28 April 2012
After an all day session by Scott Jack & Thomas it was a 3am load up and off to Cadwell for some testing before the 1st Time Attack www.timeattack.co.uk round off 2012, we weren't the only Time Attack cars getting some track time in.

Needless to say the weather report was rain and more rain......when we got there at 7.30am there was no rain but there was a lot of damp patches about on track.

9am and we were in the first sigting laps.......and just like those days at Santa Pod as the seat belts were tightened the rain spots started on the windscreen...by the end of our 3 sighting laps it was raining hard as you can tell from the last pics, hope you enjoy the pics.

1320s bodyshop - 24 April 2012
1320 use a local bodyshop for all there resprays, Simon set up his bodyshop after leaving Mercedes where he worked with Thomas. Simon was responsible for Steve Royster's Black 2 turbocharged MINI that made Redline magazine back in 2010, Simon's paintwork skilz are amazing. 

This is 1 of 3 VW campers that Simon has restored (this one is his) to a show winning finish and is now powered by Subaru
