Default VIR ISMA JCW RACING TEAM 08.22.15

VIR ISMA JCW RACING TEAM 08.22.15

I just attended a little known Race event that involved the Mini F56 JCW Racing team and two cars. Very few Mini fans were aware of this. I believe, It is/was Mini USA Supported (Funded), Sponsored by http://www.motorwerksmag.com/ (a Free Online Magazine for BMW and Mini Coopers, Hard copies available if requested at "cost") Ian Rae and Co-Sponsor Norman Nelson. Really great guys.
Virginia Raceway International (VIR), International Motor Sport Association (ISMA) John Cooper Works (JCW) Team, This was so cool, Motorwerksmag, had a "Mini Coral" this
involved parking your Mini in a coral area, just for Minis, a Tent with tables and chairs, soft drinks, and water. Free Lunch, it was located about 200 feet away from the actual track If you know the track after the left hook but before the snake up on a hill, A killer view.
So I thought it was worth the $50 ticket. But when we were told that we were going to the Pit area, before the race to meet the Race Car drivers, Crew and see the cars. Talk, meet and ask questions of the Mini Cooper Race Team. It just went from cool to GREAT......
Form My understanding, there are a few more of these occurring at future race tracks,
if you get a chance its worth going, posted a few pics
