The most basic element for getting a feel for high performance or spirited driving is an arrive and drive autocross. Miles Ahead provides the cars, the course and instruction. As part of the Mini Challenge, the group puts participants in John Cooper Works Mini Coopers, “a pocket rocket,” according to Ted Woerner, and sends them through a challenging course of tight radius corners and short straights. You are on track against the clock.
