Talk about a fun event. Everything went smooth and 2 out of my three students kicked butt.. :)

Most fun Ive had at the track in a while... The little Mini Cooper kicked some butt too.

This thread is worthless without video... :D
I wish I had some video of Geezer screaming like a little girl in the passenger seat of the Mini... :) Sadly I was not running any video this weekend.

hehe, who knew you could go into a 180 degree 40mph turn around 100mph trail braking on ABS with one rear wheel 6 inches off the ground and still stay on line the whole time.. :D

Don't sweat the technique :)
Its an ugly way to drive, but in the Mini its the only way to make it go fast. The car understeers so badly that you have to trail brake like crazy to go fast. This means braking MUCH later than normal and carrying brake about half way or more through the turn.. :)

Even though its ugly its CRAZY FUN... Using this technique I was able to hang with a couple of Loti in the Instructor run group.. :)

I'm proud of myself on days when I can make my Lotus keep up with the Minis!

Indeed. I just picked up on Geezer's identity. Took me a second since I don't frequent this board.
Awesome, glad you had some fun riding passenger in the Mini. At least you didn't scream like Geezer.. :)
