How much does size really matter? It’s a question that has caused anger through the ages, and one which we like to pose every year as part of the Gerry Marshall Trophy. Our version is: Can a Mini really take on a Chevrolet Camaro in a straight fight?
The answer to the latter question is an unequivocal yes, as you will see in the clip above, taken from the 73rd Members’ Meeting, as Mini-legend Nick Swift joins a battle between David Clark’s mighty Camaro and JD Classics’ Rover SD1 in one of the best fights at Members’ Meeting.
Nick as usual makes himself the star of the show with his brilliant in car reaction to a perceived chop from Clark, driving the bigger Camaro. But his battling is perhaps eclipsed by the incredible, round-the-outside of St Mary’s overtake, pulled off at the beginning of the clip by JD Classics ace Chris Ward in the stunning Rover.
Nick will be back in a Mini at the 74th Members’ battling against Clark and Ward, which you can watch live, in full, with our live stream right here on GRR! And you can make up your own mind if size really matters…
