Since the beginning of 2015, we wrote a number of times about LAP Motorsports and their MINI John Cooper Works Racing Team. However we haven’t done the best job at covering the performance of the team weeks in, weeks out. Starting in July, we are determined to change that and what better way to start our coverage than by giving you a detailed introduction at the JCW Racing Team. Thanks to Bruce Troxell for reaching out! continued →

MINI JCW vs. Audi S1, A Proper Comparison

MotoringFile Sections: F56 Two-Door Hardtop, In the Press, JCW Jul 13th, 2015 4 Comments


Wonder how the new JCW fares against the all-wheel drive Audi S1? Autocar has some answers.

The resulting cohesion with the running gear’s native tautness is impressive: from spring to mount to body to dashboard to steering wheel to palm, there’s no longer any chink for your admiration to slip through. Instead, with big mirrors outside and excellent iDrive-derived sat-nav inside (courtesy of a £1400 Media Pack), you merrily bound from crawl to dawdle to sprint and back again in almost total small-car contentment. continued →

goodwood-mms-111_0Because most of you are enthusiasts, you probably know that the legendary Goodwood Festival of Speed is ongoing this week.

Is This the New AWD JCW Clubman?

MotoringFile Sections: F54 Clubman, JCW, Rumor Jun 22nd, 2015 12 Comments


The Clubman is coming soon. Really soon. But that doesn’t mean Clubman developments will cease. A year ago we reported on MINI’s grand plans for the JCW brand starting with the F56 and F57 convertible (debuting late this year) and then adding the Clubman and Countryman. The latter however are the really interesting ones for longtime MINI fans however. With up to 300 hp and all wheel drive reportedly on tap, these will be the fastest MINIs yet. And this spy shot might just be our first look. continued →
