2002 Qvick Mini Cooper S3

Team Qvick has created the ultimate Mini to take on the Belcar seres, Belgium’s Endurance Championship. Under the rules, teams are allowed to replace the engines with any other engine from the same manufacturer, provided it resides in the same engine bay. Having experience with E36 M3 racing, Qvick could resist using the M3 powerplant within the small car. Much of the car has been heavily modified to adapt the much larger engine and rear-wheel drive configuration.
