Unfortunately the downside to this challenge is every Mini driver on the road wants to challenge every Porsche they see to some kind of highway duel. Maybe we should have a Porsche/Mini AX shoot out sometime.

contact GGR board and they can get you in contact to the persons that could give you direction.
If this is an event that folks want, you step up and offer to chair the event.
Get yourself a plan together, a budget and you can do any event you like

I'll talk to RR board and SVR board Dede if you'll contact GGR. Let's find out if there's any interest.
