Yet another returnee at Donington last weekend was the Mirach, a car originally designed by the incredibly gifted Chris Field back in the early nineties.

South Brent, Devon-based, Rob Hancock has owned the project since he purchased it from his former employer, Clive Robinson Racecars, although pressures from his main business of industrial glassfibre production in recent years has seen the Mirach take a backseat.

The affable Rob has always intended bringing the Mirach back and took the opportunity to make some slight amendments. I’ve always liked the Mirach, but there was always a feeling that you sat ‘on’ rather than ‘in’ the car. Rob has now addressed that by lowering the floor by 60mm and also increasing cockpit space, while the interior itself has been tastefully updated.

The car is still underpinned by the rugged spaceframe chassis that incorporates front and rear crumple zones and comprehensive kit prices start at £9595 for this capable V8-powered (Rover or Chevy) roadster.
