The Fletcher Ogle GT is a rare Mini‑based racer

Things were going pretty well for Ogle Designs and its Mini-based SX1000. The firm had built more than 60 of them and BMC had agreed to supply the mechanical components as long as the word ‘Mini’ didn’t appear in any marketing material. Then things came to an abrupt halt when company founder David Ogle was sadly killed at the wheel of an SX1000 Lightweight on the way to a race at Brands Hatch.
