OH MY GOD!!

That's as good as confirmed then.






Although you're not a million miles off the truth. theSwitchback - MINI news and reviews from the UK makes a mention of this in the latest article.

Oh wow, I guess seeing as someones mate has said this I'd best believe it, even though MINI themselves have stated the GP is never to be repeated when being interviewed by Gabe on motoringfile
