Looks like a great way to break both the car and the track....

Still fun as hell though.

Someone should push an F56 down that run and leave it at the bottom.

Slower than a bobsled. Would've been more interesting going uphill.

Brings back fond memories of Kris Meeke / James May in the MINI WRC Countryman versus Olympic Gold Medalist Amy Williams at Lilehammer...back when Top Gear was still relevant and MINI actually dabbled in WRC sponsorship...

Dave, I believe that the F56 is more well suited for ski jumping!
