Cool vids mate! I love the fact that you're passing almost everyone in that first vid. Go Mini! Where was that again? The section after the bridge reminds me a bit of Road America run backwards...

Thanks! It was a whole lot of fun. I hope I didn't make any PORSCHE owners mad. But like I said I was in the green group and had already done a track day previous to this weekend. I know from class room time that there were a few first timers in the group. I guess no matter what group your in, it's always a good feeling when you pass another car.

The track was at NJ Motorsports Park, Thunderbolt Raceway. The Park just opened in July.

Good deal! Yeah, I was pretty shocked to see the Mini passing Porsche's, especially in the STRAIGHTS! But I suppose some people are just too afraid to really push it...

It was all about keeping up in the curves. Eventually they would get tired of me stuck to their @ss in the turns that they would just let me go in the straights, or would just not push their car. I'm not saying my car isn't fast, but it's not that fast? is it?

These are probably the first videos I've seen of my car on track from an exterior camera. I know for a fact that this is the first time I've heard it on track from outside the car.

Still trying to school some porsches.
