Hi, on Saturday my girlfriend and I went to watch racing at the Kyalami racing circuit (Gauteng, South Africa) and in the class B touring cars (minimally modified) the MCS is making a trashing this year. In the attached pic you can see the two leading the focus ST170 and Mercedes C (think it's a 270CDI if I remember correctly) after about 4 laps. The 2 MINIs went on winning their class, with the gaps growing ever more. Certainly a lot of fun to see them being pushed to the limit! Also attached is a better pic of my (3-week old) car, just for the heck of it. She's nicely run-in now (2,000 km) and goes like a dream.
