The legendary image of the MINI Cooper ultimately evolved from two main events: the ingenious design of this compact car and the racing success of the cult car. The in-house racing division had notched up several rally successes even by the time the MINI was launched. One thousand units of the so-called MINI Cooper S with a more powerful 71 bhp engine were built in order to take part in Group 1 rallies. Paddy Hopkirk entered the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally with a Cooper S carrying the registration 33 EJB. The sensation of 1964 was perfect after five laps: Hopkirk and his co-driver Henry Liddon finished the race as overall winners and this victory became a milestone in the history of rally sport.
