Mystery Mini derivative (4)

Let's start the new year with yet another mystery Mini derivative.
What do we know about this one? Not too little actually.

It was supposedly based on a Riley Elf and built up as a racing car with 1100cc engine, 45 Weber and fully rose-jointed and adjustable suspension. A chap named Robin Officer from New Zealand did that or was at least involved. That's also were the car was built and raced, mainly at Teretonga race track.
Question now is: who knows more about this mean little machine?
