Do you think that would be a long ass race on one of those little bikes?

Instead of $50,000 suspension packages they were probably closer to $500.



Edit: I see one of them was a 600cc

Numbers game???
Only difference is the minis are nowhere near stock, they don't offer 4wd even. And from the looks of it they were pretty much rebuilding everything every race. Maybe they should start selling a rally version if they could get it to hold up -like Ford has done with the Raptor ?

Interesting because in another interview he said that since he was renting the mini I he didn't have to follow 'orders'.

In any event they didn't want any more carnage a chance of a wreck by pushing the cars too hard and ensure a podium sweep-they could care less about the finishing order. If I was Peter and I could win I would have done it.

neither were any of those bikes...

the mini countryman comes in allwheel drive
they also have a wrc car you could get built
and also you could buy an x-raid mini if you had the money, it would be street legal.

Thanks for the clarification on the all wheel drive. Really though, the KTM frame was a 690- by the way in one of pictures you can still see the steering lock with lock still in it! Stock motor with some heavy work and I guess one off suspension but certainly closer then those minis!!

From what I read he rolled his car. There was a video posted a while back.

It comes up at around 1:00 minute
