Firstly, I must thank my wife for not only allowing me to indulge in my various pursuits, but for her encouragement, her clever brain and quick wit that seem to lift me up but always keep me grounded.
Thanks also to the following people, who have not only provided exceptional service, but I feel have gone above and beyond in their kindness and willingness to make things easy for a person venturing into motor racing for the first time.
Evan Thompson President of the Mini Racing Drivers Club
Rick van Swet (Vice President MRDC) & original builder of the car
Grady & Bob Homewood of HiTech Motorsport (Drury)
Warren & Elliot Heron of Wallace Heron Ltd (Pukekohe)
