Throughout the little video we have b-roll pictures and snippets from our day at the track, and end with a parade lap at 4x speed to give you a feel of what driving this great venue is like!

Big thanks to everyone who attended and made this video possible. A cameo of Mini Mania’s classic cooper and new coupe on display (which I got to ride a hot lap in, woo!) and other Mini goodness. Sorry for the wind in the audio, I was using my Samsung Galaxy SII to do all the video and there was no windscreen 😛
