Clubman Hits the Road

Update by Per Schroeder to the Mini Cooper Clubman project car
Jul 21, 2010

Our last event in the Clubman was in Sebring in June. The car will be missed.

This weekend we traded in the Clubman for a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen TDI six speed. Like all of our past MINIs, the trade value was very high—essentially equalling a lease for that period of time. It was a good car, but we needed more space for our editor’s family.

So when do you chip it, add some Rotas, and hit the course?

Remember to "add lightness" by removing all of the Cheerios, Goldfish crackers, Happy Meal Toys and other accumulated detritus beneath the rear seats.

Yea, I don't think we'll be autocrossing the Wagen that much. I'm hoping the LeGrand is our primary weapon.

I wonder how the Jetta would do as a tow vehicle? It' not like the LeGrand weighs much.
