Swiftune celebrates its 50th year at the top of Mini motorsport in 2015 - Over its long history Swiftune has firmly established itself as the leading Mini race engine builder. Since 1965 our engines have been powering Minis to championship and race wins on the national and international stage.
Still out in front
And Swiftune engines are still out in front today with back-to-back wins in the Dunlop Dunlop Mini Miglia Championship (2006,2007,2008,2009). Whether it is in Mini Miglias, historic racing(see 2009 Goodwood Revival), rallying, or countless national and regional championships around the world, lift the bonnet of a race winning Mini and you will probably see a Swiftune engine.
