Mini vs porsche

There has been a lot of chatter on Facebook regarding the recent MINI vs PORSCHE race that MINI sponsored and PORSCHE wouldn't acknowledge. The actual race was June 21st. Below is the link to the YouTube event announcement. It is funny.

MINI should have used a JCW for the race.

I think they did. If I remember right, I could see the JCW badge on the front lower grille in one of the shots.. Guess I'll have to watch it again.
