It’s the return of the Iconic vehicle to have wheeled to the land’s of England. The MINI John Cooper Works is the newest of them all, testing the MOST POWERFUL MINI EVER at the Brands Hatch Race track. Imagine formula one meets a roller coaster ride, driving so fast that your camera photos capture nothing but motion. Being in the passenger seat whilst Mission Impossible, stunt driver Niki Faulkner takes the wheel. Buckled up for the ride of my life, sweaty palms at the ready (even though I was in the hands of the professional), going beyond camera speed limits and drifting around hill tops. I’d like to embrace that it would have been possible being in the fast & furious Tokyo Drift, casted as an Asian with style. Being under 25 and yes older than your driver’s licence age limit, for those in which think I may be under 18 still, unfortunately I was as close as posing in the car on this occasion. Pretty convincing isn’t it, dressed up in leather in the hottest day of London heat waves, 35degrees to be precise? None the less, you’re in for few rides this month, the beginning of ”Fashitect goes furious -The movie”.
