    Randy is a very generous man. He has helped numerous young drivers over the years and has carried the "MINI" flag with honor. He is even willing to donate the shirt(s) off his back to help a dedicated young driver come to the US to compete in the final two races for the R53 MINIs. A Class act!

    Chris Knox is on a mission to drive in these last two MINI races. If I were a betting man, I am sure he will make us all proud. Obviously this would help his career, but his will and focus is what puts him a "step above". He has opportunities in Europe where he has done well but he is determined to drive for RSR in this MINI Swansong. He has scraped together every penny he has to make this happen and has come up with clever ideas on how to fund the rest. If you have anything to donate it will go to a good cause and there are prizes to be won if you donate.

    Thank you Randy for your generous donation!

    So I wonder what RSR will be driving long-term--ie wonder if they're done with MINIs and moving on to Hondas.

    Two hundred bucks eh?..They aren't going to be needing the car anymore, are they throwing that in too? :biggrin5:

    That will be tempting...

    Saw them shaking them out at Road America a few years ago (there was also a guy who had a Challenge MINI there, not sure how he got it), both cars were VERY fast...
