Default First Auto-X

I took the Mini out for my first ever auto-x yesterday and had an absolute blast!
There was one other comparable Mini (2012 S with JCW intake, exhaust and 17 in wheels). When the owner of that car was driving, it went around in 59 seconds. He had a professional driver with him who shot around at 51.2. My fastest time of the day was 54.9 and I'm pretty pleased considering it was my first event. It is also apparent, to me at least, that my run leaves a lot of room for improvement meaning I could have been even faster had I realized more of my mistakes while there rather than watching the video after

Sounds like you did really good. I think I'd be the guy that hits all the cones.
