You can color me excited. I’ve been checking the MINIUSA website on a daily basis for a status check on our MINI. Today it switched from “Awaiting Transport” to “En Route” Woohoo!

Kim and I are pretty excited about its impending arrival. We’ve ordered 215/40R16 Kumho ECSTA V710s and some 16x6.5 Rota Slipstreams for autocross use. I’ve also got a second set of the stock sized 15x5.5 wheels (and tires!) on the way as I want to do some experimentation with the 15s vs 16s. The 15s with 205/50R15 will make good local autocross shoes.

Kim and I are debating whether or not she can make it out to Topeka for this year’s Solo II Nationals. She’s very excited about going, but she recently started a new job and her vacation time is a little sketchy. So, I do have a ride lined up in another H Stock MINI. My good friend Greg Lee from Alabama is bringing his Cooper to Topeka as well.
