Bryan Purves bought his first Mini in 1965, which at the time was only two years old. The car was progressively modified, including designing and making adjustable suspension components, machining grooved and drilled brake discs, building his own engines and gearboxes. Purves only entered local clubman rallies as the car was also used as daily transport. His interest in Minis developed into a part time tuning business, in conjunction with his brother. They then built a formula Mini Seven race-car that Purves eventually wrote off while racing at Cadwell Park. The following ten years were spent racing national and international 100cc Karts. A family oriented break ensued. Once his daughter had grown up Purves then became interested in rallying once again and has since participated in many competitive \u0022classic rallies\u0022, having been in the hot seat in an Austin Seven Ulster to Monte Carlo and also across the Sahara Desert. He then rebuilt a MKII Cooper \u0022S\u0022 which he also rallied. Purves then met Tim Brenchley and they started working together - it was a short while later that Purves and Brenchley formed a sporting partnership. They rallied Purves' MG A Coupe and 1964 MkI Cooper \u0022S\u0022. In 2005 Purves purchased what was the last works Mini to ever finish the Monte Carlo Rally and just a month later Brenchley purchased the sister car which was the last works group A Mini ever built.
