Yes, when he mentioned A30's and A35's and racing, I wondered if you had encountered him. I haven't had a chance yet to go through more of his videos, but I intend to! Very entertaining.

Ivan is a living legend, I've raced against him a few times in the A30s but his true calling is Bugattis.

I ran across this series of videos about a cool old guy named Ivan Dutton (away older than me!) who restores old cars. Among a bunch of interesting old cars, he already had a 59 Morris Mini Minor, and recently began restoring a 59 Austin Seven to running condition... in a few weeks.

Here is the link to his YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/@shed_racing

Look on the video page for Mini specific videos. He even has a 2 cylinder BMC prototype engine that was considered for the Mini. And an air-cooled 2 cylinder for the A35.
