SKF Little Giants: Pre-1966 Production and Sports & GT cars
They may be classified as “Little” (some not so little) but they are the “Giants” that achieved magnificent results on the race tracks of the world…

The Mini’s, Renaults, Alfas, Volvos, Ford Anglias and Cortinas even eliminate Hillman Imps, Austin A35’s and BMW… these are the cars that spawned imagination and gave birth to a new industry. The enterprize of tuning and speed shops.
On the 1st of February the Alfa’s will no doubt want to steal the show however there are those pesky GSM Darts of Clive Rice, Marius Roberts, MGB’s and two debutant Volvo’s of Andre Reyneke and Alan Poulter and some wizard turning on the Mini Coopers.
