  • VXR vs MINI GP Any1 had a go at 1??

    was on the M6 near preston an came across a MINI GP who insisted on hangin rite up my rear and i only just had enough fuel t get home,i was gonna give it sum but i recalled cumin up against the guy at my chemists cooper works and i cudnt get rid of him all the way to 140mph then he backed off but he was tooked in rite behind me.

    leavin me t think maybe i shoudnt try nailin it incase i get shown up.

      Tucked in behind a lot of cars seem to keep up. Probably because they have less wind resistance. I reckon side by side a vxr should pummel a Mini Cooper-s. But a GP? Do you mean the John Cooper Works one? I think they are 240bhp-ish.

          I had a Cooper S JCW and that was 210BHP.... Great fun to drive and not suprised it stuck with you all the way.... The GP is slightly lighter than normal due no rear seats. The supercharger makes you smile

            the JCW will comfortably beat the Corsa VXR which i reckon is its main competitor nut the Astra has just a bit to much for the Mini.
            on a track the Mini will leave the Astra for dead though.

            i was behind one not so long ago and although it can shift i didn't have to try too hard to stay on its tail

                Id like to have a go with one again, one got me a few months back, purely because I had a car up ahead in my lane and he didnt, and it the short space, possibly 100 metres, I couldnt get enough on him to pull out safely. Astra would win though, but wont be by much....

                        I had a race with a JCW mini on Croft Race track during a track day.

                        He could out break me and get through the corners quicker than my Berg, but on the long straight in front of the pits, the straight towards Tower Bend and through Jim Clark Esses I had a little edge. Through the twistes, the JCW had me everytime, on the straights I pulled back some of what I'd lost on the corners. As for Lap times, I'd say the JCW was quicker than me.

                          I raced a cooper s GP that was tuned to apparently nearly 300hp and I kept right on his ****, that was in my 08 Arden as well so prob the burg would be slightly quicker.

                              in standard form i reckon they would be ever so close in a straight line, the mini may even have the edge i believe

                              and corners? Well theres only 1 winner there, the mini hands down
                              Whats next?!?!?
