Sep 25, 2008 update to the Mini Cooper S project car

Fourth Place!

Our co-driver, Tom Heath, sneaks around the cones.

Our 2007 MINI Cooper S finished in the fourth spot at the 2008 Solo National Championships in Topeka, Kansas. Our top driver, Per Schroeder, came back from his sixth-place standing after the first day of competition to finish the event in fourth. This was Per’s third nationals trophy, and his first one since 1999. Tom Heath, our production editor, also did quite well; he finished 16th.

The MINI ran great out in Topeka, and we did not regret our last-minute decision to stick with the Hoosier A6 tires: Temperatures struggled to reach 60 degrees during our runs.
