Got a good half hour this Saturday morning to watch a couple of British guys entertain you while building one of the the world’s fastest Minis? No, well make the time because you’re in for some laughs and you might learn something, too.
Project Binky is the work of Nik Blackhurst and Richard Brunning, the principals of Bad Obsession Motorsport in the United Kingdom. For the past two and a half years the duo has been combining an Austin Mini with a Toyota Celica GT-Four’s drivetrain and suspension to build a charming little race car.
In this episode, we see our heroes completely fabricate a fuel tank for the car, fill in the rear package shelf, finish off the firewall, and widen the wheels by two inches. There is some real old-school fabrication work going on here, and it’s only matched by the pair’s charming British sense of humor. If you like Monty Python, you’ll probably like these guys.
We are looking forward to the end of this project and a video or two of the Bad Obsession boys driving the hell out of this little demon.
