ODOMETER
1964 Austin Mini Cooper Downton

It was in December 1961 that Autocar magazine published an article entitled “Mini-Ton-Bomb” which was a rave review of a Downton converted Mini Cooper that could not only do a genuine 100mph but was easier to drive, quieter and even more frugal on fuel than the standard model. This was closely followed, in 1962, by a Downton-modified Mini Cooper competing in the Targa Florio road race in Sicily. The little Cooper, not only did remarkably well in its class but outperformed many of the larger cars on the event. It was not long before news of the work being done in the sleepy Wiltshire village of Downton made it back to the people who ran the British Motor Industry at the time and Daniel Richmond was invited to demonstrate his wares to the men at BMC. This initial meeting was a great success and shortly after, Downton Engineering began supplying BMC with modified engine components for the race and rally cars being prepared by their Competitions Department. The Richmonds, Daniel and his, commercially astute, wife Bunty even fitted a Downton tuning kit to the Mini driven by its designer Alec Issigonis. BMC was so impressed with the quality of his work and the insight into the workings of the internal combustion engine that Daniel Richmond possessed, that he was offered work as a Design Consultant, with particular emphasis on the cylinder head, the heart of any internal combustion engine.
