Bugger.......obviously you'll get to see it later I guess.

A few observations to wet your appetite. The airbags work, and the hazard lights do come on after automatically after an accident.......and they stay upright!!

Celebrities really should stick to what they do best.....:rolleyes:

Entertaining never the less........

cheers

Don't worry Basil, I think the chances of US in the UK seeing the MINI race is pretty close to zero. Maybe the people who pay for all the satellite sports channels will get to see it, but there's no chance terrestrial telly will.

For each GP, we get the full race (less the bits chopped out for advertising) but none of the support races - instead, we get to see a couple of TV twits and a clapped-out racing driver or two witter on for a couple of hours before and after, analysing the fact that Coulthard just hasn't quite got what it takes ...

We could see the F1 race live on US tv (Speed channel) - but no MINI challenge. :( :(

did any one record the race and if so upload a copy for all to see
If you try this link, theres quite a view Quicktime Movies of the practice sessions of the MINI celebrities. Havn't checked it since yesterday, but i'm sure highlights of the race will be there eventually as well.
