MINI, which has been running the MINI challenge series in Europe, has been testing the waters in the US to see if they should bring the new R56 racecar to the US, and make the car available for sale to customers.  The car is a wicked little car….all the right pieces, and nicely dressed.  We know from our own experience that the MINI is a potent track car to start, and we have seen recent success w the R53 version in the Grand Am series here in the US this year (2008).
