My first car, my Dad restored him for me. Sparked my passion for cars. Joined the local car club as ‘Sorceress and Merlin’
Lots of adventures: Wakefield Park track day, Photoshoot for the local art gallery, coming First in Class in the Townsville Sprint Series.

Last of the supercharged JCW’s. He was awesome straight out of the box. Only mod was to de-cat.
He was optioned to the wahzoo!! Sunroof, HK stereo, the works.
Moved to Brisbane where there was no MINI car scene. Restarted clubMINI QLD with Ben and Julie as the Secretary and Memberships coordinator.
Trackdays galore!! Skidpan, Lakeside, QR!!
2006 JCW Checkmate ‘Minwah’.
The fastest production MINI when released. Only 2000 in the world. His production number is 1909.
Puts a smile on my face every damn day, this thing is a BEAST. Have plans for it when the warranty runs out, only updated the speakers so far.
He’s so sexy and so FAST! Handles like its stuck to the road and has the the most amazing sound for a 4 cylinder.
