This is the 50th Anniversary of Paddy Hopkirk's famous win in the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally, which he won driving a MINI Cooper S.  A 1992 MINI has been kindly donated by Terence Donnelly and painted by the renowned Ulster artist Neil Shawcross.  The MINI has been autographed by both Paddy and Neil as well as other motor racing legends Ari Vitanen, Jimmy McRae, Adrian Boyd, Cathal Curley and John Watson.

The MINI is to be sold at a Gala Banquet on 22nd February 2014 from the Titanic Belfast with proceeds going to two of Paddy's selected charities the Intergrated Education Fund for Northern Ireland and SKIDZ.  

With an estimated value of over £10,000 the MINI is a working piece of art which would be an eye catching addition to any car or art collection.
