A very rare car...

The Mini Cooper 'S' powered D.P. Nimbus

'One morning I looked up at the sky admiring the clouds overhead and the Nimbus name was born'

- Don Parker the originator of the Nimbus

Bryan aquired the historic DP Nimbus race/sprint car during February 2009.

The car has subsequently undergone a full restoration in Bryan's Sussex workshop and had its inaugural display at the Goodwood Revival meeting in September 2009

The Nimbus also had a 'track debut', it can been seen below leading a number of Mini Coopers on the parade lap.
