The late Micky Bray built the famous Ford Pop - 'Pinball Wizard' in the 1970's a regular at Custom Car and Rod shows of the era. He was also later a Mini Se7en Racer and shared his first race Mini with my late brother Steve Bell for a couple of seasons........Micky sadly died from cancer in 2006.

Pinball Wizard in the 1970's and the Corgi version of Mickey Brays Mini 7 Racer.

"The late Mickey Bray`s Metalflake Mini 7 car was built by Mickey in the late 80`s and was campaigned every year up until the end of 2005 during which time the car did not suffer any major accident damage. A testament to Mickeys` driving. The car was simple, ultra competive and very reliable. In the highly competitive world of Mini 7 racing Mickey invariably finished in or around the top 10, winning at Brands Hatch in 1998 whilst overcoming a 10 sec start penalty. The cars last outing was the last race of 2005 at Rockingham Motor Speedway where it finished 6th."
