    Just wondering who's going and if anyone knows of anything special occurring because Mini is the featured marque this year. I'm going with the S2000 club for sure, but I wasn't sure if it was worth it for my Pops to drive my Mini down too.

    Decisions, decisions...:confused5:

    Every weekend at Mid-Ohio is special. I'll be there with other MINI and Central Ohio car guys, infield at the bottom of the esses near the pedestrian bridge.

    They stopped making them after the recession in 08 and they make a lot more coin off their normal cars, but word on the street is they're going to come back within the next couple of years to compete with the Miata, FRS/BRZ, etc.

    This is true, I didn't know if Mini's were getting any special treatment (parking)... Recently, I've gotten spoiled by Mid-Ohio with the S2000 because of their Honda racing program.(They like keeping our cars around) :aureola:

    The Miata was a better car and they turned to the Honda Civic and made a mess out of it like an F56. :devil:

    Rumor is there is special parking for Mini's, but I'm not holding my breath. I'll be in the paddox with the S2000 either way (Dads taking the R55), so see you all there.

    I'm sure there will be a MINI corral. For me parking in the shade by the track is always best.
