My "MINI" Adventure



The following day, we all woke up very early, had breakfast, and were bussed to a remote location north of Barcelona for top spy training.  We arrived at an old race track where BMW professional instructors were standing by.  Lined up were 22 MINI Cooper S, light blue or dark silver with a different flag on top of each car.  All cars were equipped with the official Mission MINI soundtrack compiled by BMG in Germany, and a set of 17" tires with run-flat technology (tires can run for another 80 miles after getting a flat).  Everyone jumped off the bus and ran toward the cars!
