Our old friend Paul from MINI2 was one of the lucky European journalists invited to drive the JCW GP yesterday at a BMW sponsored track event. Paul gives us the full download on how it is on the track as well as everyday driving. A great review for both those who have the GP on order and for those who are just curious.

When is MotoringFile going to get to drive the GP you ask? Unfortunately my week long review won’t be happening until this fall, a month or two after the first GPs are delivered. Until then expect MotoringFile reviews from Todd (of Whiteroofradio) and perhaps a short one from yours truly at Monterey with the rest of the U.S. journos. Until then I’ll have to make due with a week long 2006 MCS JCW review starting next Friday. Tough going indeed.
