Race the R53 in the US may not be completely over. Check out the twin engine R53, 500 HP, 4 WD MINI that Jacques Andres is building for competition in the unlimited class for the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. Get the whole story with an interview with Jacque in Miniology’s December Radio Show
This MINI will compete with the big bore Corvettes and BMW’s in the grueling 25 Hour Enduro Race at Thunderhill Raceway Park. Although this Mini won’t be finished for this years race coming up on Dec 8-9, look for it to be competing shortly. We need to rally the Mini enthusiasts to support this effort. How much fun will it be to see a MINI blow past a Corvette going down the straight.
