Great video!! The action doesn't start 'till 2:30, but it doesn't stop till the checkered flag. Man, I can't believe he reeled him in.

Awesome! I was anticipating the yellow car to catch up in the corners and the red car to pull away on the straights. The drag after the bump was impressive.

Yeah, me too. It looked like the mini was breaking 3-4 car lengths (normal car lengths, not mini lengths) after the Honda....and keeping up with him on the straights. Very cool vid, thanks for posting 3duppies.

Hmm, that Mini seems to have the opposite abilities of most Minis, great handling with so-so power. This one pulled away from the Honda in the straights but got caught in the turns. If anything that's a complement to the Honda's handling.

Best commentary ever.

Worst safety barricades ever. No barricades coming out if the final turn and lined with people. Could you imagine if the Honda had bumped the Mini going into that corner and they both got sideways?

For some reason I really like Indian accents. Unless it's on the other side of a customer service phone call.

I don't know. Watch that turn at the end of the straight. The mini doesn't brake untill 50' after the turn is over and somehow still manages to make it. That's where he reeled him in.

Nothing better than watching an original Mini hauling absolute ASS across a race course.

Wow, I never thought I'd see a muscle Mini getting rundown in the corners.
