Mini Cooper – Rob Stacey, Restored EYH 846C No. CC82260

This Rob Stacey restored Mini Cooper EYH 846C is an authentic detailed replica for collectors and Mini afficianados alike which was part of 2010 issue of the Corgi Mini Mania Collection.

Following its recent restoration, the Mk1 Austin Cooper 998, EYH 846C re-entered the world of historic rallying by competing on the internationally renowned 2008 Coppa Milano-San Remo Rally. This demanding event, originally organised by the Automobile Club Milano ran from 1906 to 1973. The revival now allows a new generation of drivers and navigators to compete upon the same roads, in cars from the golden age of rallying.

Having been cheered off from the Piazza Dumo, the rally's challenging route winds its way towards Genoa, then the Apennine mountain range and through the Faiallo pass high above the Italian Riviera, before reaching the descent to final clocking in the tiny Principality of San Remo.
