I have never discovered the engine sizes of the Electron Minors that competed in the rallies you have identified.
Of interest is that Alec Mylonadis also took part in the Grand Prix Pescara, 4 h Testa Rossa, in a Fairthorpe listed as an Electron. He sadly had a mechanical failure during the race. The race took place on 15.8.1961 and was won by Bandini in a Ferrari 250
Also in this race was another 'Electron' driven by Gabrio Del Torre who also broke down.
Both these cars were in the 1150cc capacity class - could that make then Electon Minors with 1147cc engines, or would they have been 1098 Coventry Climaxes?
Gabrio Del Torre entered but did not start the 10.000 kms race at Monza on 29.6.60 - the car was listed for this race as an Electron as well.
It would be good to have a list of international races to supplement your rally list as this can also help with papers!
