Maximum fun with MINI - #MINIThrills
MINI Thrills: You have to experience it yourself. When Bilster calls Berg, it sounds like fun. Of course, I agreed there, who would not have?
I arrive and I hear: There is a lot going on, also outside the racetrack. That's why not only the John Cooper Works are there, but the whole family. So also the Countryman and the Cooper S.
So my convertible is allowed to rest after the long drive and to watch it comfortably from the parking lot. We've known each other for so long, so that's no problem.
Otherwise MINI are very sensitive, if they are not the center of attention. ;-) Real MINI drivers know that.
But MINI is not just "driving" but has a history and lifestyle. The entire event shows the diversity around the MINI cult.
Right next to the exhibits and the historical side, I see the present and the future. A cozy lounge area invites you to linger. While the other guests enjoy, I'm having fun tweeting and populating Instagram as well as my Facebook page.
The Electrifying Future of MINI
Seeing the new ethical attitude of a MINI from the future he has to be on a leash!
The MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 plug-in hybrid is ready to take the big nose forward. I would love to try it, I'm very curious.
But back to the dirty present. I'm talking about overland now - so if you drive out of the city out into the country. There are already dirt roads and jogging trails. First of all under outdoor laboratory conditions, to clarify.After the stage appearance, we then test the Countryman in the wild. Of course we drove in the MINI pack, well behind each other, how that is!
MINI wet and agile
Nice to see how agile the Cooper S stays on wet roads. Neatly gassing and watching as the spray squirts. That makes mood. But immediately there should be no wet but a hot tire. I extend the S by three letters in addition. Yes, that's not just three letters, that's a few seconds less from zero to a hundred - so one more portion of driving pleasure.
MINI Cooper S JCW in the trap - the mousetrap from Bilster Mountain
No, here you can not see the mousetrap of Bilster Mountain. But we did a little photo shoot when the other participants had a nice lunch. You can see the making-of on the small photos. MINI power and women's power in a photo is hard to take! ; -)
Quickly take a picture of the other group before it goes into the MINI Cooper S JCW itself. If you look closely, you will also spot the Clubman in the "hot sole" version.
Here's the colorful series of Little Red Riding Hoods and some black-and-white skull caps in the pit lane. Seat in racing position, adjust the mirror and straighten. Engage in first gear in sport mode and hands on the steering wheel - and, where available - fingers on the paddles to upshift.The Curves in the right places say "hello" and otherwise nice and fast but still harmonious a good racing line hinbekommen. Since I drove the Bilster Berg for the third time, I immediately recognized the track layout again and had it completely and perfectly in my head after the first lap. But every racetrack ends in the pits and the day is over. The MINI have to return to the pits. Schnüffz, I would have spent hours ... well, to whom do I say that.
A group picture completes each event. Of course we did not let that take us away. And as you can see, everyone is beaming!
